The activity aims to foster knowledge exchange and share effective teaching strategies to address key challenges encountered by educators.

It consists of:

  1. Online lectures on the topics of interculturality, diversity, and inclusion, which will be conducted in the morning and are open to all EUGLOH members (students, academic, and administrative staff from the 9 universities of the Alliance).
  2. Hybrid workshop sessions in the afternoon open to EUGLOH students (from the 9 partner universities) of education programmes aiming to become preschool to high school teachers.

Participants can expect a rich and engaging programme that delves into various aspects of culture, identity, diversity, and inclusion in education. Additionally, the programme provides a unique opportunity to gain an international perspective on diverse educational systems while facilitating connections with experts from Germany, Sweden, and France.

Students participating in the workshop are also requested to attend the online lectures.

Workshop sessions will be conducted in hybrid form at each of the three organizing universities (UPScaly, LU, and UHH), where groups of 4-5 students will engage in discussions based on the topics covered in the lectures.

LU, UPSaclay, and UHH will provide physical spaces for students enrolled at these universities to participate in the workshop in person.
