About

The project WITEA-ID (Weeks of International Teaching – Inclusive and Digital) is funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission, aiming to bring an innovative approach to internationalization in higher education in the digital environment. WITEA-ID is a transnational project that draws on existing and emerging digital and international mobility competencies and skills needs in higher education, translating them into an approach of short term events with highly relevant inputs and reflecting critical cybersecurity issues.

 

The project intends to create the infrastructure necessary for learning events with transnational and international participants on the side of students as well as teachers. Opening such events to the broader public due to digital transfer of the teaching sessions should enable more inclusivity of the education (overcoming the geographical, health and other obstacles and age barriers).

Objectives

The project intends to create the infrastructure necessary for learning events with transnational and international participants on the side of students as well as teachers. Opening such events to the broader public due to digital transfer of the teaching sessions should enable more inclusivity of the education (overcoming the geographical, health and other obstacles and also age barriers). The project aims to:
  • Ensure that HEI students and teachers are at the forefront run of research, technological developments and innovation in digitalisation; (to enhance digital competences);
  • Ensure that current and future professionals have the work attitude, knowledge, flexibility and competencies that they can cope with rapid changing EU job market demands; (to enhance competences for international mobility and multilingualism);
  • Identify the existing and emerging needs of teachers in digital education and enhance the responsiveness of initial and continuing training for teachers to these needs; (to enhance digital competences);
  • Promote synergies, cooperation and cross-fertilisation among partners (to enhance internationalisation on the participating institutions);
  • Include new stakeholder groups in short time events (to enhance inclusivity).
