E-ViEW

The December webinar series on creating a European Virtual Campus aimed at work-based learners

Partners in the E-ViEW project have spent the past 2 years developing and piloting a European Virtual Campus aimed at learners in the work place who want to enhance their management skills and competences within a European context. In a series of 3 webinars that took place in December 2012, the partnership shared their experience and invited participants in a discussion on how best to support such learners. Each hour-long webinar included several presentations followed by a live interactive discussion session.
