Inclusion & Diversity
In a blended curriculum, the challenge of equally including all students is even greater than in a face-to-face environment. With this community, we want to increase our understanding of how hybrid learning and inclusion affect each other. By making explicit that students have different backgrounds and various needs. Careful design and management of educational processes is essential to ensure that all students feel included.
CoP I&D Collaboration with Stellenbosch University
Several members of the CoP Diversity & Inclusion are engaged in online workshops with partners at Stellenbosch University (SU) as part of this wider collaboration with a focus on inclusion, diversity and internationalization. The Strategic Partnership Framework is an initiative in which the UG strives for closer collaboration with nine renowned and multidisciplinary partner universities from outside Europe. SU is extra important because it is seen as a stepping stone to the rest of the continent, which ties in with the sub-Saharan Africa Strategy of the UG that was launched in June. The first two sessions were held in June and October 2022 on sharing inclusive education practices from both universities and internationalising course design. Summaries are provided here.
