The EVOLVE project team is pleased to announce that the monitoring study Virtual Exchange as Innovative Practice across Europe: Awareness and Use in Higher Education is now available from our website. 

The study presents the results of a survey among Higher Education (HE) stakeholders on the awareness and use of Virtual Exchange (VE) in HE institutions in Europe and beyond, two years after a baseline study on the same topic.

The results indicate that most respondents have a clear understanding of what VE is and that the primary uses remain concentrated in Arts and Humanities disciplines. Under the influence of Covid-19, VE appears to be increasingly integrated in HEIs strategies and policies for internationalisation and educational innovation. The attested potential is related to HEI’s wider ambitions with regard to Internationalisation-at-Home and Sustainable Development Goals. For many institutions, the path to further implementation is still uncertain and VE is likely to remain part of policy experimentations for some time.
