Description:

Blended AIM (or Blended Academic International Mobility) – is a project initiated by the Instituto Politecnico Do Porto in cooperation with European Association of Erasmus Cordinators and 8 other international partners in 2015 and funded by the European Commissions under Erasmus+ programme.
Blended Mobility is an educational program that combines physical mobility and the blended learning approach. In a blended mobility setting the students can get international experience, without being a full semester abroad. Typically the students will participate in a project for several months, communicate virtually and are abroad for two weeks. In the B-aim project we want to promote the blended mobility approach and we research the positive (& negative) impacts on the students careers.

Structural objectives:

  • Settle the European foundation for blended mobility.
  • Foster internationalization of education.
  • Deploy, test and disseminate a blended mobility capstone project course unit combining best practices in place at partners’ institutions.

Pedagogical objectives:

  • Promote students’ employability through non-formal learning not requiring curricula changes.
  • Promote international experience of undergraduate students.
  • Boost the provision of professional skills, support collaborative learning and critical thinking.
