‘Learning Mobility for Mutual Benefit.’ LEMONOC Training Session & Community of Practice, 12 – 13 May 2016

UC Leuven-Limburg supports the LEMONOC network. The main objective is to improve the quality of learning mobility with the Global South within European higher education institutions.

The LEMONOC team has developed a training session for professionals involved in learning mobility in the global South. On 12 May 2016 we offer a selection of sessions by experts on community development and action research.

 Moreover LEMONOC aims to become a community of practice, open to all stakeholders in learning mobility who wish to discuss trends, potentials and challenges, and share their ideas and experiences. On 13 May 2016 we plan a ‘kick-off’ meeting in which all potential partners can brainstorm together on the baselines of a further sustainable cooperation on learning mobility.
