Course organization and structure

Studying in a face-to-face and online workgroup allowed participants to test a hybrid mode training format and reach a broader understanding of the ENHANCE Alliance targets. Sessions include both theoretical and practical parts primarily focused on specific daily goals:

–      Day 1, International engagement, and alliance belonging: the ENHANCE feeling

–      Day 2, ENHANCE bottom-up innovation in university administration

–      Day 3, ENHANCE student participation and inclusion.
