From the 15th of April until the 19th of April, the working group Mobility organized their first ‘BIP Staff Week’. The event, called ‘BEE’ for short, focusses on “How to organize a Blended Intensive Programme in Engineering Education”. It was open to administrative, academic and educational support staff from all CLUSTER (associate) members. They were able to interact in an informal atmosphere with counterparts from other CLUSTER universities. Participants shared best practices and brainstormed about challenges when organizing a course in blended format. At the same time, the week aimed to increase awareness and develop knowledge and competences on organizing courses in a blended format.

The BIP Staff week consisted of multiple sessions and guest speakers. The desired output is a concept paper with guidelines for organizing a BIP specifically in engineering education.
