A two- day training was organised within Inclusion project on November 29-30. Hosted by American University of Armenia, the training was conducted by senior lecturer of Roehampton University Bridget Middlemas. The main aim of the training was to introduce the best practice for inclusive learning and teaching methodology to the Armenian partners.
The first day was dedicated to the faculty training representing the main principles and inclusive approach to teaching and learning. Bridget Middlemas highlighted the challenges that faculty members can face while working with students with special educational needs.
The second day of the training was for administration of the higher education institutions. Mrs Middlemas introduced the ways their administration deals with students from vulnerable groups. The key point was to distinguish students that have special educational needs right from the admission so that to support them throughout their education at Roehampton University.
Besides the training, the group that works on national guideline for inclusive teaching and learning had a separate meeting with Mrs Middlemas discussing the outline and the main recommendations to be included in the national guideline.
