Strategic Partnerships

Colibri is an innovation teaching project, funded by the Erasmus Plus programme of the European Union, key action Strategic Partnerships.

Strategic Partnerships aim to support the development, transfer and/or implementation of innovative practices within e.g. higher education. Colibri will specifically address the purposes of: 

  • Enhancing the quality and relevance of of the learning offer in education by developing new and innovative approaches, and by supporting the dissemination of best practices. 
  • Increase labour market relevance of learning provision and qualifications. 
  • Promote the take-up of innovative practices in education by supporting personalised learning approaches, collaborative learning, by making use of ICT and Open Educational Resources, and by exploring the use of blended and virtual mobility. 

The results and dissemination activities are designed to ensure that Colibri will have a strong systemic impact on both participating organisations and outsiders. Key elements here are the active involvement of teachers, who will become ambassadors of the results, and the openly available results that makes it easy for other university teachers to exploit the methods and materials developed during the project.  

Colibri starts in September 2014 and lasts for three years.
