International exchange from home with COPILOT

The collaborative university project COPILOT, which was completed in 2021 under the leadership of Elisabeth Fattinger, has now reached the implementation phase as a course at FH JOANNEUM in Bad Gleichenberg and is already meeting with a positive response from students in the various semesters in terms of virtual mobility.

Students can learn with their colleagues from different European partner universities on certain topics with and from each other online and thus acquire intercultural skills and an international perspective of their professional field - from home. COPILOT thus proves to be a low-threshold opportunity to participate in an international exchange.

In the course of their studies, FH JOANNEUM students can choose at least two of a total of eight international online modules in which they work on occupational therapy topics such as Professional Identity, OT and Digitalisation or Family Occupations Through Generations together with their "peers". Afterwards, our students receive certificates of participation, which are highly valued especially for further applications in the international setting.
