International exchange “Light”: the VET DigiPals approach

The organisation of mobilities abroad has now also been almost completely stopped for a year due to COVID-19. As a result, many VET students are missing the opportunity to gain experience abroad during their school career.

Thanks to the VET DigiPals approach, this damage can be somewhat limited: the approach offers students and teachers in VET the opportunity to set up and share internationally and online learning experiences on a small scale.

Select a topic to your taste and serve it to and with students and/or teachers abroad. Also suitable as a starter for international mobilities or other exchange projects. Fits with all courses in technical and vocational education.

In just a few simple steps you can realise your VET DigiPals project:

  1. Find the learning experience you want to share

In this step you involve your (fellow) students as much as possible: together you look for a learning experience that you find interesting to share. On the website you will find some examples for inspiration.

  1. Briefly introduce your idea

You can quickly pass on your idea via an online form. You can find this form on the website.

  1. You will be supported in the further development of your idea, and a foreign partner school will be sought.

In this way a concrete planning is established.

  1. Do!

You organise the digital learning sharing experience, together with the foreign partner.

  1. You participate in a short evaluation of the experience

There will be a brief questioning of your experience in order to learn even more from this.
