The conference: Blended Erasmus+ for Higher Education professionals – a leap into the future concludes the two-year Erasmus+ co-funded project Blended Erasmus+ Staff Training (BEST+).

The BEST+ projects aims to innovate the way university staff members working in international relations develop their competences.

To achieve this goal, a cost efficient new methodology called blended staff mobility was piloted, combining traditional physical mobility with comprehensive online material. In this context, the blendedmobility.eu online platform was developed, which serves as community platform for all university staff members working in international relations.

BEST+ tested the blended concept through conducting three different courses relevant to improving the work of university staff and the quality of mobility.

Additionally, the project created guidelines for blended staff mobility, describing in detail the different methodologies that can be used to efficiently conduct blended staff mobility courses and how to implement them in the blendedmobility.eu online platform.
