Integration of Refugees: the Role of Higher Education
From 16th to 20th of April the staff training week “Integration of Refugees: the Role of Higher Education” initiated by the EU project inHERE took place at Sapziena University Rome. I was lucky to participate at the staff training, which addressed the following topics:
- Definitions and legal information
- Access to higher education
- Recognition of prior formal, non-formal and informal learning
- Socio-economic integration – psychological support and integration in the labour market
- Diversity Management
You can read more about the training at the UNIMED news article.
Especially interesting for me was the session on recognition of prior learning and I was happy to present VINCE project and MAGNET project during the training. I am working in both projects at Danube-University Krems, Department of Interactive Media and Educational Technologies.
- VINCE is dedicated to support the access to higher education for refugees through the validation of their prior learning (e.g. if documents are missing, if their prior learning cannot be assessed/grasped through traditional methods, etc).
- MAGNET supports migrant entrepreneurship, contributing to participate in society and to inclusion.
