The course offers innovative teaching elements and combines virtual (online) and weekly contact teaching (intensive week). This type of short-term mixed mobility is in great demand among FSpS MU students.

Last year we held the intensive week at FSpS MU. This year's course, entitled "Behaviour Change Innovations for People with Chronic Diseases", had its contact part on 8–12 April 2024 in Kaunas, Lithuania, at Lithuanian Sports University. In addition to the Faculty of Sports Studies of Masaryk University and Lithuanian Sports University, partner institutions include Inholland University of Applied Sciences (NED), Western Norway University of Applied Sciences (NOR), Polytechnic Institute Of Santarém (POR) and University of Málaga (SPA).

All participating universities provide part of the course's professional programme through their academics, and the BIP is a great opportunity to maintain mutual contacts. Since the beginning of this programme, the course has been attended by the vice-dean for internationalisation, Michal Kumstát: "This year's BIP was once again an opportunity for me to use my week abroad in a really meaningful way. As vice-dean, I agreed with the partner universities on the spot on concrete cooperation for the coming years, as a lecturer I gave a lecture and discussed with students on the topic "Nutrition and physical activity - what are the synergies?" and as a "student" I felt during the whole programme, which I attended together with the students and which was extremely enriching because besides the professional content it was valuable to perceive the differences in teaching methods and innovations that colleagues from foreign universities included in their teaching".

Next year, the contact part of the course will be organised by the Polytechnic Institute Of Santarém, Portugal.
