UNIC Online Superdiversity School November 2022 - Accessibility in Higher Education

8 Nov 2022

UNIC partners Ruhr Universität Bochum and the University of Oulu, Finland, will host an online 'Superdiversity School' on Wednesday November 16 to Friday November 18, 2022. UCC students, staff and researchers are invited to join. Participants can choose to sign up for individual workshops on these days.

The full three-day programme and registration can be viewed here: anmeldung-super-diversity-school (ruhr-uni-bochum.de). The programme runs from 12 midday to 2pm (Irish time) on November 16, from 8am to 12 midday on November 17, and from 8am to 1.30pm on November 18.

Zoom subtitles are available for all sessions.

In this three-day superdiversity school, we will discuss questions around accessibility, barriers, and gatekeeping in higher education. Come and join us to exchange experience, to debate and to learn!

Who gets access to higher education and research careers? Who faces barriers? What can we all do to foster equal opportunities? We will be looking at accessibility and inclusion in particular, but choose an intersectional approach to access to higher education and research.

The event is organised by Ruhr Universität Bochum in collaboration with the University of Oulu, Finland. Students, academics and staff of all UNIC universities are invited to join! You will be able to meet and discuss with international participants, learn about the state of research, develop new ideas and share good practice. We aim to create an easily accessible online event. All status groups and their contributions will be welcome.
