The VALIANT Virtual Exchange programme: Connecting education practitioners in rural and isolated contexts through Virtual Exchange
VALIANT is an Erasmus+ KA3 project which will engage school teachers in international Virtual Exchange projects with other teachers across Europe as well as with student teachers and educational experts. These exchanges will take place in English and will require approximately a B2 communicative level.
The VALIANT Virtual Exchange programme will give participants the opportunity to develop their digital and intercultural skills, share experiences with colleagues in other European contexts and develop their knowledge about themes related to teaching and learning.
VALIANT is being specifically designed for teachers and student teachers working or studying in rural areas or contexts where they have:
-Limited access to specialised experts and trainers.
-Difficulties attending workshops due to, for example, long driving distances.
-Difficulties to participate in in-house professional development activities
