My Virtual Internship - Business student Angeliki Papaemmanouil talks about her internship at Business Development Friesland, Netherlands.


Nynke de Jager It was a pleasure "hosting" Angeliki! I agree that remote internships have challenges, but I also agree that this type of internships offer opportunities. Angeliki was able to fulfil and exceed our expectations, her contribution was very valuable. Having Angeliki as an intern, made us also more aware of the opportunities of remote internships and we are now much more open for considering this type of internship than before. 3 years ago

Entrepreneurial Education Strengthening Resilience, Societal Change and Sustainability
Entrepreneurship education equips learners with competencies to manage the challenging circumstances inherent in entrepreneurial activity. One such competency is resilience, the capacity to address, adapt to, and overcome adversity, uncertainty, and change.

The recent occurrence of many different adversities – financial, environmental, migration crises and current pandemic crises – has strongly affected the economically active part of the countries and regions – business sector and entrepreneurs. Countries and regions are not prepared for prompt response; the adequate measures are missing. To build a resilient and sustainable community, it is important that all the regional key players, entrepreneurs among others, have sufficient knowledge and skills on crises and instability management which can limit the potential threat and impact of some disasters.

Therefore, Erasmus+ project ReFace –“Regions facing...

FAVILLE: Facilitators of virtual learning aims to enhance the quality standards of facilitation in virtual learning environments and to provide skills and competences that facilitators of virtual learning need to develop or improve their activity.

EXPECTED RESULTS, currently in piloting:
*Modular e-learning program for virtual learning facilitators
*A digital application that, in addition to describing individual facilitation methods and examples of their use, also offers an easy-to-use function to select appropriate methods according to the parameters (eg profile, course subject, number of students in the learning group, type of problem, etc.)
*A framework for validating skills and competences for obtaining professional qualifications for those facilitators who have acquired their skills, knowledge and competences outside the formal learning process in non-formal and informal learning.

We would like to invite you to assess your skills and...

Nel corso del webinar sono stati affrontati i temi sulla pianificazione, sulla gestione, sulle ricadute del tirocinio virtuale. Gli studenti che hanno partecipato alla sperimentazione pilota del progetto ENTER.MODE “Internship Model for Developing of Entrepreneurial skills Higher Education Students (Codice progetto: 601125 EPP-1-2018-1-SK-EPPKA2-KA) hanno offerto i loro preziosi spunti esperienziali. Si ringraziano i numerosi docenti, il personale degli uffici erasmus, tirocinio, comunicazione, progetti dell'università nonchè le imprese e gli studenti che hanno arricchito l'evento.

I think a mixed team delivers the best performance because you can learn from each other's experience and because such a varied input is created without everyone having to acquire all the experiences themselves. Mixed as in gender, age, background, schooling etc


This experience has just come to an end and we can say we enjoyed it so much!! The virtual internship of the Enter Mode project lasted one month with brilliant results! Patricia Ciefova from TUKE university in Kosice, Slovakia had her internship in Eurocrea Merchant, from Milan, Italy. A success story of virtual cooperation between Higher Education Institutes and companies.

I agree with you Iris! An intern could feel like he/she can bring up more easily certain ideas if it is a start up project still in the developmental phase. It is sort of a brainstorm session, so any idea might help enrich the new project. On the contrary, I feel like there's a lot more to learn in cases of well-established working practices: of course some ideas can be brought up also in this case but it wouldn't be the first thing to do, compared to trying to learn as much as possible.

Serious gaming

Serious gaming companies should borrow more fun concepts from casual gaming in order to make the concepts they want to emphasize more interesting. Serious gaming is a good learning tool but it sometimes needs more fun elements to attract more users especially young people. The learning concepts can be combined with more fun concepts from traditional video games. Thus more people will use them and the learning experience will be enhanced. What do you think?
