The survey will render an accurate picture of the expectations and existing practices at the different participating organisations as well as at the satelite contributors. This first step is necessary for the format for virtual exchange as well as for the direction of the feasibility study on an accredited joint curriculum. The survey will touch on at least the following elements: a) the desired function and form of the format to be developed, b) the technical/IT platforms currently in use an their advantages and disadvantages, c) the different pedagogic and didactic standards currently in use and d)the overall expectations for virtual exchange. A report with findings form the collected survey data will be conducted. At the end of the project a second round of surveys shall be held, this time also involving the wider groups of participants such as students, teachers and involved professionals. The findings shall again be combined into a report.
