Mobility Goes Virtual


Under the umbrella of the programme IVAC (International Virtual Academic Collaboration), the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) funds a one-year project at the Faculty of Computer Science and Business Information Systems (FIW) in cooperation with the International Office (HSIN) and the Kharkiv Polytechnic Institute (KhPI) of the National Technical University, Ukraine, to implement an intercampus blended-learning module with the focus on "Sustainability in Digitalisation (Green IT)".

Aims of the project


As part of the project "Mobility Goes Virtual", a joint virtual module will be offered for students of FHWS and KhPI, in which the focus will be on the topic of "Sustainability in Digitalisation (Green IT)".

In addition to the thematic focus, the acquisition of digital and intercultural skills will also be a central element of the module. The integration of digital educational tools and methods and their use within the joint classes should not only be reasonably organized by the students themselves, but also evaluated in terms of usability, accessibility, sustainability and/or learning effects. For example, students are expected to work out an approach that can be used to make hardware and software solutions more sustainable.

In addition, the module will be structured in a project and team-oriented manner. This will enable students from both universities to exchange ideas, experience project management in an international environment and, acquire intercultural skills.

The module will be designed in a co-teaching format by lecturers from FHWS and KhPI and thus offers the opportunity for international exchange not only on the student level, but also on the lecturer level.

Furthermore, exchange opportunities outside the classroom will be created to offer participants a social programme and allow them to familiarise with each other's culture. The joint module is rounded off by a mobility: a visit to the partner university for the students' final presentations.

Since October 2021, Mobility Goes Virtual is funded by:
