About this training
The aim of this training is to provide participants with a clear understanding of how to increase the inclusive recruitment of students from underrepresented groups in international student mobility. A variety of discussion-based activities will be carried out, to facilitate knowledge-sharing and jointly create concrete avenues of action.
The training is based on the Guidelines for Inclusive Mobility Promotion and Recruitment, one of the main outputs developed by the SIEM project consortium. The Guidelines are a tool specifically designed for HEIs aiming at increasing awareness of (I) differences in the student population, (II) main characteristics of underrepresented student groups in international student mobility.
This training on Inclusion and Diversity in International Student Mobility is addressed to Higher Education Institutions. As a part of the Social Inclusion and Engagement in Mobility project, the training will focus on offering tangible tools for institutions to improve the diversity in their student mobility.
The workshop will tackle the following topics:
- Institutional Inclusion and Diversity strategies in mobility
- Defining Diversity profiles at your institutions
- Barriers to inclusion in student mobility
- Defining stakeholders to improve inclusion and diversity in mobility
- Developing an inclusion action plan
This training will be of interest to HEI representatives, in particular International Relation Officers (IROs) interested in piloting the Guidelines in their institutions.
