    Abstract

    This report presents the findings of one of the studies carried out by the Erasmus+ KA3 project EVOLVE (www.evolve-erasmus.eu). Situated in the project’s wider context of mainstreaming VE as innovative practice in HE in Europe and beyond, the focus of the current study is on the impact of Virtual Exchange (VE) on student learning in Higher Education (HE). Based on student data collected from 16 exchange projects between 34 partners from HEIs in Europe and other parts of the globe, it looks into students’ general perceptions and appreciation of VE and the development of intercultural competences, critical digital literacy, language skills and disciplinary learning.
