Maximising the outcomes of an international mobility experience by providing digitally enhanced support at all points during the mobility journey

The overall aim of the project was to identify every phase of the “mobile student journey”. We then wanted to create a series of digitally enhanced tools that would not only increase the visibility of the mobility opportunities available at the University of Birmingham but also increase the support available to students; and this during every stage of their decision making process, from pre-departure to transition back into campus and beyond. We achieved our aims with the completion of the My Global Story canvas module, a 4-steps approach supporting students and the #myglobalstory digital campaigns available on multiple social media platforms.

The next steps for My Global Story are to a) embedded this resource in everything that we do, using the platform to communicate with our audiences…and b) to link MGS with Pebblebad and the new Academic Tutoring model for students to submit reflective reports and assignments on a regular basis.

The Canvas course is accessible by University of Birmingham staff and students:
