INCREASING SOUTH BALTIC MOBILITY AND UNDERSTANDING VIA VIRTUAL COMMUNICATION PLATFORMS IN NURSE EDUCATION Abstract Content: The EU promotes workforce mobility within member states and the recognition of educational qualifications in order to match labour market supply and demand needs. COHAB, a South Baltic EU funded project, focuses upon improving staff and student competencies for cross-border South Baltic mobility. An innovative educational cooperation using virtual communication systems for parallel teaching sessions, and IT based interactive learning objects, study visits and an international summer school, is being developed by the nursing departments at The University of Klaipeda in Lithuania, Gdansk Medical University in Poland and University College Zealand in Denmark. Project partners hope that this initiative will not only support the development of student and staff professional competencies, cultural understanding and professional mobility but will also contribute to the development of attractive student learning environments.
