Erasmus+ mobility of academics improves teaching and learning practices, staff skills and competencies.
• 43% of academic staff who went to teach or train abroad with Erasmus+ started to use at least one new innovative teaching method (such as work-based learning) during their stay abroad.
• They connect more with the labour market, with 60% involving staff from enterprises in their courses, compared to 40% of non-mobile academics.
• The impact of Erasmus+ on innovative curriculum development and modern teaching practices spreads beyond participants. More than 80% of academics report that Erasmus+ has led to improvements in these areas in their faculty.
