Inclusion and diversity: registration for the new Profformance+ project team webinar is now open

Inclusion and diversity: addressing diverse students’ needs is the topic of the fifth in a series of thematic webinars organised by the Profformance+ project consortium. The webinar will be held online on the 28th of February 2024, from 14:00 to 16:00 CET.

The webinar will be dedicated to examples of good practice on the topic of inclusion and diversity in higher education, these being some of the thematic fields included in the Profformance assessment tool. The event is intended for lecturers and administration staff of higher education institutions, as well as researchers, decision makers and other stakeholders in the field of higher education.

You can register for the event until noon of the 26th of February by completing the registration form.

The webinar will consist of two parts. In the first part, selected examples of good practice from countries participating in the project (Serbia, Georgia, Hungary and Croatia) will be shown, while the second part will be dedicated to either a more in-depth conversation about one of the examples presented or to discussing the Profformance assessment tool itself, according to the participants’ choices.

The webinar will be held in English. You can read more about the event itself and the event topics on the Profformance+ project website, where the agenda will also be available.

This webinar will be the fifth in a series of thematic webinars, which is based on the    Profformance teaching excellence database. The database consists of around 130 good practices in higher education prepared by teachers and professional communities from six different countries for the call for proposals for the Profformance teaching excellence award in the field of higher education for the academic year 2021/2022.

The Profformance+ project is implemented by a consortium consisting of relevant ministries from Hungary, the Czech Republic, Austria and Croatia, along with the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Serbia and the Foundation Tempus. The goal of this project is to support the quality enhancement of teaching and learning at higher education institutions in the European Higher Education Area by developing and promoting a tool for the assessment of teachers and by incorporating a system of incentives, while collecting and sharing examples of good practice.
