  Inclusive Higher Education Training Programme-IHET 2022

The Inclusive Higher Education Training Programme, created by Prof. Laura Nota and her applied research team at the University of Padua (Italy), aims at developing inclusive teaching skills that take into account the heterogeneity that increasingly characterizes educational and training contexts, the students, and those who participate in university classrooms.

As further detailed below (paragraph: “Inclusive Higher Education for a university working towards the 2030 Agenda”), the Programme is strictly connected to the 2030 Agenda and in particular to Sustainable Development Goal n.4: ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.

At the end of the proposed training programme, the participants will be able to design and conduct teaching activities that give value to complexity and heterogeneity. They will be able to develop a teaching program focused on equal opportunities and the presumption of competence. They will consider possible it to favour skills and abilities thanks to appropriate conditions, giving an active role to all learners, looking for original solutions, and personalizing proposals and supports.

The training, engaging small groups of teaching staff, will be held online at the local level in each of the Alliance universities starting with March 3 and will carry on until May-June 2022.
