Dear fellow teachers and researchers,
Looking for new ways to interest your students and expand internationally? Eager to develop European virtual training packages? Stimulated by international collaboration? Want to extend your reach to European students interested in your field?
Recent events have shown how virtual exchanges and training can break through frontiers and help students learn differently, forging connections despite distances.
Many of you have already expressed your interest in the new mobility opportunities and educational innovations brought about by our EDUC (European Digital UniverCity). EDUC offers a diversity of international mobility schemes. Your courses can gain notoriety through virtual mobility, online courses, virtual classes, videos and other forms – all for the benefit of your students through our European University. Beside EDUC is here to help you with new approaches suitable for virtual teaching to open new opportunities for you.
EDUC Alliance is keen to discover your educational project. By taking a few minutes to complete the questionnaire, we can seek the best ways to support you.
From September 2020, we will support your projects aiming at:
- Adapting or developing online content for use within the EDUC Alliance (videos for blended learning, recorded classes, translations or subtitling, ...);
- Offering a European experience through virtual mobility (MOOCs, online student collaborations, etc…);
- Virtual courses, synchronous and asynchronous online teaching reaching a wider audience
- Creating new interest in your field for European students, reaching a wider audience (virtual classes, synchronous and asynchronous online teaching),
- Collaborating with other teachers, developing and improving pedagogical practices through the EDUC Alliance.
Through your project, you will have the opportunity to join a Teachers’ Community of Practice and to get technical and also financial support for the course creation, access to resources for online learning and mobility support for teachers
Mandatory criteria are:
- The project includes at least one form of virtual and international mobility intended for EDUC students, as mentioned here.
- Programs, courses or educational resources are available to students from at least one EDUC Alliance university.
- The project fully integrates a multilingual aspect (at least English, possibly partner languages).
Favourable criteria are:
- The project involves collaboration with at least one other teacher identified in one of the universities of the EDUC Alliance.
We can also support you if you already run a similar/overlapping project within another local or European strategic initiative.
For organizational reasons, depending on the number of projects received, a selection may be made from projects that meet these criteria. The following will be considered: the number of forms of virtual mobility offered, the number of collaborations identified with EDUC teachers, the number of EDUC universities involved, the number of involved EDUC students.
- Until June 15th: Complete the online questionnaire,
- June 15th to 30th September: proposal assessment, search for suitable partners at universities, feedback
- September 30th: Final selection of the projects
- October: Start of selected projects, for deployment in 2021
The EDUC team
Dear new members of our MUNI family,
we would like to welcome here both degree and exchange students and offer you some opportunities, so that you can be more involved in MUNI’s life!
We are looking for our new friends who would:
1. participate in photo and video shoots at the faculties,
2. take over the @masaryk_university Instagram account for a day,
3. become an ambassador for Masaryk University.
As a reward, you will get some university merch (usually something, that is not available for anyone else) and if participating on bigger projects, a financial reward!
If you are interested, you can fill in a short form here (it is not binding in any way):
Photo and Video shoots
Want to have your time at MUNI forever remembered on film? Volunteer to be in one (or more) of the video and photo shoots taking place during the Spring semester 2020. All international students are invited to apply.
Students interested in showing the “real life” at Masaryk University are able to take over the @masaryk_university Instagram account for a day and show what a day in the life is like in Brno. Past takeovers can be seen in the story highlights on our Instagram page under each faculty.
This program allows students to be representatives of Masaryk University when they go home and to encourage more students to come and study at MUNI. Students will receive information about the university to effectively promote their studies here, and will receive custom MUNI merchandise that is only available to student ambassadors.

If you’d like to have even more luxurious accomodation, see the end of this letter for more information.
We’ll try to get some rooms directly in Vinařská dormitory, but since there will still be some students, it is unsure if it will work out. We’ll keep you posted.
Do not hesitate too much with the booking, because there will be lot of people coming even from the Czech Republic and the hotel could get full.

2) Date of birth
3) Year and study field from your stay at MUNI
I will send you scanned signed invitation letter via email.
Please share the information among your friends from studying here, so we can meet in as large number as possible :-) Especially if you have some FB groups from the time of your stay etc.
Thank you again for coming, it will be incredible!
