DEV 5.2.1 First Virtual Mobility Run Assessment

The first Virtual Mobility Run has been assessed by the participants to the activity, i.e.:

  • Students
  • Teaching staff from EU partners
  • Teaching staff from TURIL and Serbia

The respondents were invited to fill a questionnaire that was available on the moodle platform, i.e. the platform used by students and teachers to share materials and the video lecture.

The questionnaire was aiming to assess the:

  • Quality of the organization of the virtual mobility run
  • Quality of the learning/teaching experience during the virtual mobility run and the online courses

To this aim, three questionnaires targeted to the three groups. So that:

  • 31 closed questions were posed to students + space for comments
  • 19 closed questions to teachers from home universities + space for comments
  • 21 closed questions to supervisors + space for comments

The responses were gathered and analysed and summarized in a report.

Overall, the experience was considered interesting and satisfactory for both students and supervisors. Using the words of the students: “Virtual mobility helped me gain more experience and knowledge in many aspects.”, “Virtual mobility is a good idea and should also be available to the students in the future.” The preparation of the activity was smooth and clear: all agreed that objectives settings and communication was well done.

From the experience, some lessons learnt were obtained, that were useful in the organization of the second virtual mobility run. The activity was performed in early summer, that was a bad timing for the students, and it should have lasted more time. One of the main challenge was the engagement of the students in the virtual sessions, due probably also to the fact that it was the first experience for all the students.  Teachers need to put in practice actions to increase students’ engagement during the sessions.
