4EU+ Coffee Talk on Inclusive education: Engaging diverse perspectives in a multifaceted discussion (24 June)

When and where? Monday, 24 June 2024, 13:00-15:00, online

Event overview

Today’s education system has a diverse student population with various learning styles, disabilities, cultural backgrounds, genders, and social classes. This diversity presents challenges as well as opportunities to enrich the educational experience. Our 4EU+ Coffee Talk is dedicated to laying the groundwork for creating truly inclusive educational environments where every student feels valued, understood, and supported.

By fostering meaningful discussions on inclusion within higher education institutions, we aim to explore practical solutions, share personal experiences, and disseminate lessons learned. The event will take the format of a roundtable discussion featuring speakers from 4EU+ universities and beyond.

Target group

Educators, administrators, students, and stakeholders from all levels of the academic community are invited to participate in this conversation. If you are dedicated to promoting inclusion, we welcome you to contribute to cultivating a fertile ground for discussions and innovative ideas about inclusivity in education.
