Welcome to the HIBLend Survey

This questionnaire has been prepared in the framework of the HIBLend project “Fostering high-quality blended student mobility in higher education” funded under the Erasmus+ programme. HIBLend aims to build the capacity of higher education institutions to design and deliver quality blended mobility opportunities for students through the exchange of good practice and peer learning. The project is coordinated by the Academic Cooperation Association and implemented in close collaboration with the European University Foundation, the Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders, Masaryk University and Tampere University of Applied Sciences. For more information about the project please visit our website.

The aim of this survey is to map different approaches to blended student mobility in the post-Covid context. For the purpose of this questionnaire, blended mobility is understood as an international learning activity consisting of a physical mobility experience and a complementary virtual learning component delivered prior, during or after the physical mobility stage.[1]

Common examples of blended student mobility include Blended Intensive Programmes (BIPs) for students funded under the Erasmus+ programme or other types of blended short-term study mobility activities funded at the EU, national or institutional level (e.g., summer schools).

This survey targets any administrative or academic staff actively involved in the design or delivery of blended mobility activities at the central or faculty/department level (e.g., International Mobility Coordinators, study programme coordinators, teachers/professors, e-learning consultants, methodological advisors, quality assurance officers, IRO, IT officers).

The questionnaire consists of four major parts encompassing: (a) background information on the respondents, (b) motivation for the set-up of a blended mobility activity, (c) delivery mode, and (d) challenges to implementation and impact. The questionnaire is in English language, please provide all of your answers in English language only. It takes ca. 20 minutes to complete this questionnaire.
