Engage yourself as Tutor
If the student is at the centre of the Virtual Mobility, the tutor is nonetheless the keystone in the project and in the virtual mobility exchange.
Indeed, what is an Erasmus+ exchange without someone being here to guide you, to introduce you to the system of the University, to help you when needed?
In classic physical mobility, there is often an Erasmus+ office or a tutor, a mentor that is here to assist you. Here in the virtual mobility, this role will be taken by the tutor, you. If tutoring is mainly related to the courses, it is not the only activity that we are expecting from a tutor. Indeed, tutoring can take different angles depending on the wish and on the need of each student, and on the requirement of the teachers.
The tutor will work in an interdependent relationship with teachers from their university AND students from abroad. He is the cornerstone between the teachers, the university, and the international student.
At the beginning of each mentoring, the tutor will have an interview with the student in VM from one of the partner universities, to meet and to elaborate together their collaboration during the project.
