Linkr for Blended Mobility 

What is "Blended Mobility"?

An emerging industry term, a ‘Blended Mobility’ program is one where students sign up for study outside of their home campus (the mobility part), which is then augmented by some form of virtual exchange pre, during, and/or post exchange (the blended part). The pandemic drastically reduced the mobility aspect of many programs, but the future is heading full steam back into Blended Mobility in a major way, and Linkr is fast becoming the preferred hub for cross-institutional collaborations worldwide.

Blended Mobility integrates virtual exchange and collaboration, before, during and/or after student exchanges. It offers varying degrees of involvement to give a wider range of participants access to the kind of intercultural and interactive experiences that make traditional exchange programs so impactful.

 

A Blended Mobility program is run by an educational institution or organization which has harnessed the power of Blended Mobility components to broaden their learning community around international exchange.

Why are institutions and organizations championing and growing Blended Mobility programs?
