The Compostela Group of Universities encourages (CGU) professors from its member universities to participate in the VE-COIL August 2020 virtual exchange call, for which the registration period is open.

The Executive Secretariat of the network has decided to eliminate the deadline for registration in the VE-COIL August 2020 call, previously set at 30 April 2020, to promote virtual exchanges as a tool for the dynamisation of online teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, it should be noted that these exchanges are initially scheduled to take place during the period August-December 2020, so it is recommended to register before these dates.

Professors interested in participating in the VE-COIL August 2020 call must complete the electronic form available on the Programme for the Development of Virtual Exchange VE-COIL page. The information in this form, which must be filled in English, will serve as a basis for the coordination of the activity for the establishment of the collaboration peers.

The coordination will review the applications and send the collaboration proposals to the professors, who can accept or reject them. Once the acceptances are confirmed, the coordinators and the professors will have an introductory meeting by videoconference, after which the teachers will begin to develop the structure of the course together. Professors have the flexibility to reach their own agreements regarding the course, although the coordination recommends that the activities have the same value in the assessment in both universities.
