MIELSTONE 2012

The intensive course ‘Mirroring Inclusive Education in New Nordic–Baltic Learning Environments’ represents the cooperation between several Nordic and Baltic institutions of higher education in addressing inclusion from an educational point of view. The course is going to be carried out for the third time in an academic year 2012-13.

The intensive course 2012 will continue to address the environment in a broad context in connection with inclusive education, and the two aspects will be seen in the perspective of life-long learning – in formal and non-formal contexts.

The intensive course will work within the following headings:

  • Developing participating students’ competences in working with pupils and other learners affected by social in and exclusion;
  • Developing participating students’ competences in facilitating cooperation between the educational institution and the local community to promote inclusion (parents, guardians, social workers, etc.);

This Intensive Course will award 7 ECTS points.
