OpenVM last ME: Quality and Sustainability


EADTU and the UIB teams have been working closely together in Output 7 outcomes: both during the work process and intellectual drafts and for the celebration of the last Multiplier Event. And the result is another success, for which we also want to celebrate that the whole partnership has been particularly active and involved.

It was planned as a face-to-face session in Ibiza center of  the University Balearic Islands but the COVID-19 crisis made us to move online. The experience has been a total success and we had an impressive participation of more than 300 attendees and a powerful program full of relevant topics and experiences.

EADTU held the event and programmed the first session whereas OpenVM designed the second day of sessions. For the first day, many interesting and innovative experiences on VM were presented and the programe with slides and video-recording
can be found here.

On 19th June, we all collaborated to present our outcomes and how our main products can be useful for those teachers, students and stakeholders preparing a VM experience. We have also presented the creation of a a Special Interest Group, chaired by EADTU, to lead the work for the coming next five years. You can see the video-recording of the whole session here and the following slides for each presentation:
