During this mini-conference, you’ll have the opportunity to: 

  • Discover the importance of internationalization (Presentation by the International office of Windesheim)
  • Learn about the Virtual Exchange Program organized by Windesheim and Inchainge
  • Explore the added value of serious gaming and Integrated Learning
  • Understand the importance of a Circular Economy (why and how)


About internationalization: 

We will discuss several distance learning applications and distance learning initiatives where students from different institutions collaborate together.


About the Virtual Exchange Program:

Due to lockdowns caused by the COVID-19 outbreak, most of the students have been unable to go abroad and gain valuable international experience. To make internationalization at home possible, the Windesheim University of Applied Science and Inchainge launched the Virtual Exchange Program in 2020.


Circular business game, The Blue Connection forms the heart of the program, aligned with strong intercultural and networking components to further strengthen the learning impact. This session will help to understand why experiential learning with business simulations becomes even more powerful for students when applied in these various international contexts.

As the world is opening up, we are still committed to making opportunities for student exchange more accessible and inclusive. The next edition of the Virtual Exchange Program will be starting this October and it will focus on the following three dimensions: 

• Internationalization and Intercultural Skills

• Networking and Career Skills

• Introduction to Circular Economy
