The aim of the Advanced Training is to take partnering educators and their support teams through the steps required to design and implement a successful Virtual Exchange. The training will start with an explanation about the logistics, moving on to the learning objectives and the tasks and tools needed to accomplish such objectives. 

The training lasts 6 weeks and involves a weekly time commitment of 2-3 hours, including regular contact between partners, as well as weekly live video sessions. At the end of the training, partners will have designed their own project in detail and will be ready to implement their exchange, usually in the following semester, with the support of the course tutors.

The Advanced Training is designed for educators who have already established a partnership and have a general idea for the primary aims of the Virtual Exchange they would like to design and implement. However, in certain cases, individual educators are welcome to participate if they have a clear idea of a project they would like to develop. 

Support staff such as technical staff and international relations staff are also encouraged to participate. It is recommended that participants and/or another representatives from their institution have completed the Basic Training.

Transnational Virtual Exchange Projects are intended to foster meaningful intercultural experiences, the development of transversal skills, better understanding of a specific theme such as cyberbullying, volunteering, youth and sports, etc. as well as the development of specific skills such as communicating in a foreign language.
