The year 2014 has started very busy with Disseminating Inclusive Practices project. Although the project is now operating its last year, the themes and planned actions seem to get more and more interesting. At least I'm quite excited!
The checklist for inclusive learning environments (created in DIP -project) is presented in Nera congress 5th - 7th March, in Lillehammer, Norway. DIP -project actors have a poster session here. The theme of the congress, Education for sustainable development, sounds interesting and hopefully we will get new insights and thoughts for the rest of our project's active working time. The congress is a yearly meeting-place for educational researchers of all kinds of special interests in the Nordic countries.
DIP -project's closing seminar is held 8th May in Tampere and it is part of Tampere UAS, School of Vocational Teacher Education's international week (6th - 10th May). Closing seminar will include key note presentations, visits to different educational institutes and a workshop. More information and the program for the seminar will be published later.
Collaboration between Tampere University of Applied Sciences, Tampere University of Technology and Budapest University of Technology and Economics has led to an idea to create an e-learning course with the theme "Participatory e-learning". This course will be created, planned and implemented in collaboration with all universities mentioned above and the participants will be representing the same institutes. The planning and organizing will take place this spring and the course will be held in autumn 2014. More information about this will be given later.
