Last Wednesday April 11th, the Research Institute for Innovation & Technology in Education (UNIR iTED) presented at Madrid headquarters of Universidad Internacional de La Rioja (UNIR) the Virtual Tours project (V-Tours) online course, focused on business culture. During the course, the participants will acquire competences that will support their incorporation to the labour market. The students will also have access to activities, videos and readings, getting first-hand knowledge about the business organization. The online course is already available in English in piloting phase, and will be launched in 4 languages of the consortium partners (Spanish, Italian, Finnish and Macedonian) in the next days.
Financed by Erasmus+ Programme, V-Tours Project aims to increase and improve the opportunities for dialogue between Universities, students and enterprises, so that companies can play an active role in the student’s employability improvement.
On the other hand, the Project also offers to the students the participation in various virtual visits to different companies. They consist on online sessions in streaming, in which a Manager of the company introduces the organization and internal processes, and replies to the questions asked by the participants in real time.
The Project, started in 2016, pertains to the Programme Erasmus+, KA2 – Cooperation for Innovation and the Exchange of Good Practices Strategic Partnerships for Higher Education.
