Erasmus Skills has been conceptualised in a period of time where European member states reached general consensus on the importance of learning mobility in their education systems.

The project will make it possible for students to self-assess their learning mobility outcomes and for academics to understand the added-value of mobility in the context of their study programmes.

The core of “Erasmus Skills” is to ensure that students are more aware of the process they go through while going on exchange and the impact this has on their skills, their personal development and their place in society as active citizens. The project aims to enhance the reflection of students about these aspects by deploying innovative tools on the impact of an exchange experience, which will be used both by students and university staff members.

The project has been sequenced in a way that all relevant target groups are being addressed by results (students, administrative and academics staff, policy-makers). The exploitation of results will reach optimal results by further developing the Erasmus+ mobile App, allowing students to self-assess their mobility experiences as they go on their smartphone.

In addition, the project will also include the design of a methodology supporting academics on integrating learning mobility outcomes into curricula, which will certainly allow providing institutions and academics with recommendations and advice on how mobility is relevant to specific academic disciplines.
