Supporting International Student Mobility

This session consists of three presentations.

Featured Speakers

Ognjen Orel, University of Zagreb:
Virtual Campus as a Core Information Infrastructure of the European University #9
European Universities alliances have some specific goals but also share basic ideas like boosting student, teacher and researcher mobility and cooperation or creating and implementing joint study programmes. A virtual campus is often envisioned as an information system that will bind the partner universities’ information and fill in the gaps where needed. However, building such a system presents a number of challenges. The architecture of such a system is presented using the example of a particular virtual campus, along with the lessons learned in creating it.

Elizabeth Newall, Jisc:
International students’ digital experience: Key issues in delivering and supporting international students with their digital learning #59
Jisc’s Digital Experience Insights surveys have been used across UK Higher Education institutions over the last seven years. International students studying in the UK have been part of that dataset but their unique experiences prior to arrival on, and during, their programmes of study have not been captured. The need was identified to investigate the digital experience of this significant student population. With much attention given to equality, diversity and inclusion, Jisc has embarked on a research project to support the sector in providing all students with an equitable digital experience. This paper summarises the key findings from the first phase.

Ulricke Lucke, University of Potsdam:
Personalized Recommendations for Individual Learning Pathways: Supporting Ukrainian Refugee Students in Continuing their University Education #29
Among the refugees of the war in Ukraine, there is an above-average number of academics, who should be able to continue their university studies abroad. Here, digital media can lower access barriers, but lack of knowledge of the language or the education system in the host country hampers participation. In addition, needs vary from person to person, which makes counselling processes complex. We present a cross institutional recommendation system that proposes personalized recommendations for suitable learning paths and makes appropriate educational opportunities accessible.
