Innovative Technology for International Employability Skills

This project is based on the concept that international mobility experiences build employability skills deemed vital for success in the workforce. Working with students participating in international virtual exchanges, we delivered webinars, post-webinar assignments reflecting on learning and used the gamification app as a digital tool to enhance intercultural and employability skills. The students were guided through the steps of understanding, reflecting and implementing the value of international experiences and learned how to articulate this process to future employers in order to obtain successful entry into the job market.
