Online Internship in Tourism
The ON-IT project aims to develop a guidance framework and practical tools to design and implement quality online tourism internships in higher education. By actively engaging all actors involved in the internship experience, the ON-IT project focuses on equipping them with the necessary knowledge and skills to face the challenges of digital transformation in the labour market.
In order to provide guidance for successful online work-based learning experiences, the ON-IT project will develop:
- A mapping of existing practices on how higher education institutions reacted to the need of implementing remote internship and traineeship provisions;
- A guideline document, as a reference to organise online internships and traineeships effectively;
- Actual internship case studies to test the guidelines and identify relevant learning needs;
- Learning resources and learning opportunities (webinars, short courses) for all target groups involved.
Ultimately, the ON-IT project will contribute to: improve the work-based learning offer of higher education institutions; equip higher education students with employability skills, particularly those related to remote working; increase integration between academic bodies and support services; enhance the capacity to embed the world of work into academic curricula; advance and harmonise European policies in higher education.
The ON-IT project is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.
