Every year, thousands of young students participate in the Erasmus+ program, to work or study abroad and gain intercultural experiences. Though these exchange programs usually have positive effects, it often lacks pedagogical support / intercultural mentoring and intercultural seminars so participants can systematically reflect their experiences in their host cultures and improve the learning outcomes of their exchange.
Comprehensive individual mentoring is necessary in order to tap the full potential of the intercultural learning experience with Erasmus+. Unfortunately, most participants do not have access to such services. Our strategy is to incorporate virtual learning modules into existing mentoring programs and to create a platform that meets the demands of a modern and digital generation: CONNECT 2.0.
