The focus of the 3rd online Inclusiveness Meetup hosted by the University of Porto will be on the knowledge transference of #IBelong project results, its learning insights and toolkits. During the event, we will bring together various stakeholders from the higher education, and other fields, to discuss, reflect and share perspectives on the best approaches towards achieving equity in higher education. #IBelong team will share key takeaways from creating set of interventions aimed at promoting student’s sense of belonging in learning environments. Additionally, by inviting guests from other institutions that piloted #IBelong interventions, we will demonstrate how lessons from #IBelong can be scaled-up to other contexts.
During the event, participants will be invited to choose between different workshops focused on proposals to develop a sense of belonging and community building.
This Inclusiveness Meetup is part of #IBelong Multiplier Events.
The project #IBelong – ‘Towards a sense of belonging in an inclusive learning environment’ aims at improving the experiences and outcomes of students from diverse backgrounds (including, but not limited to migrant students and first-generation entrants) through creating a more inclusive learning environment in higher education.
Detailed programme will be posted in the coming days.
