Join the Online Learning Agreement Conference in Bergen on 7 June 2018!

The Online Learning Agreement Conference in Bergen is a conference organised by the Strategic Partnership OLA+, coordinated by European University Foundation (EUF), where the University of Bergen is one of the partners. At the conference, we will give you information about the background and context of the Online Learning Agreement (OLA), as well as a demo of how to use the OLA from the point of view of students and staff.

What you will get at the OLA Conference

  • Updates on the digitalisation of student mobility in the Erasmus+ Programme.
  • Knowledge on the new Erasmus+ Dashboard and new OLA+ features.
  • Inspiration on how to start the implementation of the OLA+ at your institution.

Target groups

We especially encourage our colleagues at HEIs in the Nordic and Baltic countries to participate, but anyone working with student mobility in Europe is welcome to sign up. Participants should preferably have experience with the Erasmus programme and/or signing Learning Agreements.
