Call for projects - Internationalise your teaching with EDUC

Teachers: are you excited by the idea of international teaching collaboration? Would you like to highlight your teaching by making it accessible to European students interested in your discipline? The EDUC (European Digital UniverCity) Alliance has set up two scenarios to support teachers who want to internationalize their courses. Pick yours!

Deadline: Continous

EDUC makes possible new types of mobility and collaboration, for students and academic/non-academic staff, in the context of a transnational European entity. It develops programmes to support teachers looking for new ways to engage their students and expand their international reach.

Two scenarios are available to you:

Scenario 1: course inside an online multidisciplinary programme (GOMP)

An online multidisciplinary programme consists of two courses over one academic year, from two different universities. The courses that make up a GOMP are developed independently by teachers from different universities, but must complement each other and focus on a pre-established theme.

This scenario gives you the opportunity to offer an online course open to students from all the alliance's universities, while benefiting from individualized, tailor-made administrative, pedagogical and technical support:

  • Duration of the course: 1 semester.
  • Language: English (B2 level).
  • Theme (your choice) : European issues OR introduction to new disciplines (digitalisation, sustainable development, strategic challenges in Europe).
  • Course format: online (asynchronous).
  • Workload: 60-75h (2-3 ECTS)
  • Capacity: at least 40 students (5 students par alliance’s university)

For more information about this scenario, see the technical sheet.


Scenario 2: collaborative virtual courses

Collaborative virtual courses are joint courses set up between teachers at two or more universities in the EDUC alliance, as part of each institution's courses offer. The aim is for teachers to develop virtual teaching and exchange scenarios together. These can take many different forms like synchronous or asynchronous distance learning, online resources, virtual reality or lecture series.

This scenario gives you the opportunity to strengthen or develop new partnerships around your course, while benefiting from individualized, tailor-made administrative, pedagogical and technical support:

  • Language: English or any other language spoken in the alliance (Spanish, Catalan, Norwegian, German, French, Italian, Hungarian, Czech).
  • Theme: theme of your choice
  • Course format: online.
  • Students: the students participating in the course at your university and your teaching partner’s students at their university.

For more information about this scenario, see the technical sheet.


Who can apply?

  • Good command of English or, in the case of the second scenario, any other language spoken at an alliance’s university with a B2 level.
  • Courses can be offered in any discipline and are suitable for Bachelor and Master students.
  • The approval of the faculty where your course is taught is required when the project is submitted.

When can you apply?

Application deadlines vary depending on the scenario you choose:

  • Scenario 1 submission deadline: October 6th 2023 - November 10th 2023
  • Scenario 2 submission deadline: continuous project submission. We analyse projects 4 times a year. You can also view the projects of other teachers at a partner university to join their project. The first mailbox opening date is November 10, 2023. The first review of projects is planned on November 10th 2023.

How can you apply?

The application process is the same for both scenarios. To make it easier to submit and support your project, we've created a space on the EDUC online learning platform. To submit your project, please contact your local EDUC officer. The steps for submitting the project will be provided to you.

Two selection phases will then take place to validate the project (a local selection committee and an alliance-wide selection committee). You will be contacted by the EDUC team to discuss your proposal if necessary, and to inform you of the results of the selection process. All the necessary information is available directly on this platform: course: EDUC Teacher's Journey ( as well as in the recap sheets for each scenario.

Project evaluation criteria:

  • Added value and objective of the virtual exchange format compared with standard teaching.
  • Relevance of proposed teaching methods.
  • Feasibility of the project.
  • Sustainability of the project.
  • Prospects for further development.
  • How the project will be promoted (for Scenario 2 courses, the quality of the partnership and the contribution and complementarity of the partner(s) will also be taken into account).

Join us now, you will be supported at every stage of the project by internationalisation experts. Many teachers are already taking part in this international adventure, why not you?
