Inspiration Afternoon ComeniusNetwerk – Inclusive higher education

Logo ComeniusNetwerk

Inclusivity is receiving more and more attention in higher education. In the meantime, many institutions have special diversity officers and inclusivity often plays an important role in education-renewal. But how can you now really realize inclusivity in higher education. During this inspiration afternoon, we will be searching for answers to this question, by means of a work session, interactive theater and stories of experts. We will collaborate on concrete steps that we can make in order to make higher education more inclusive, for all.

This session will be organized by “trace inclusie’ and is open voor members of the ComeniusNetwerk, their project members, and other interested parties.

Date and time: Monday 20th of January 2020, 13:00 – 17:00.
