Virtual Exchange resources / training for teaching staff

(28 August 2020)

The International Partnerships Team have collected resources to support Durham colleagues who are interested to learn more about the concept of ‘Virtual Exchange’ (VE, also known as ‘COIL’) with a view to implementing or developing their own VE programme for students in conjunction with an international partner. On the Virtual Exchange for Educators page you can find information about an Erasmus+ online training course for university teaching staff and professional support staff. The course takes place from 6 September – 4 October.

This free course provides an introduction to Virtual Exchange and requires around 2 - 3 hours of commitment per week, including one x 1 hour live, interactive video session per week. Please do let the partnerships team ( know if you would be interested to attend this training, or to discuss VE / COIL more generally.

More information about the Erasmus+ course can be found here.
