Inclusive Education Mobility Survey

12.11.2019

The Support Center for Inclusive Higher Education in Flanders (SIHO) - together with their Ministry of Education - has received funding from Erasmus+ to conduct a project called Establishing a thought-out Policy and Framework for Inclusive Mobility across Europe (EPFIME). Partners of this project, among others, are also ESN and AHEAD, and the project is focusing on Higher Education. More information about this project can be found on the SIHO website.

This project has started in May 2019 and consortium partners have been busy working on the first outputs of this project, mostly connected to the research part. We will gladly present you some updates about this project at the next IMA meeting in November. Your inputs will be highly appreciated in order to create a platform inclusivemobility.eu that is the most relevant and useful for all stakeholders (Students, Universities, National authorities).

With this email, we would like to introduce to you the surveys we have created on Inclusive Mobility and ask you to help us spread them widely:

  • Survey for students - An incentive has been allocated and two lucky students will be able to win an Interrail voucher (200€ value each) by participating in this survey!
  • Survey for Higher Education Institutions - No Interrail voucher here unfortunately but a recommendation to both International Officer and Disability Office to meet and fill in the survey together, as this survey touches upon the work area of both units.
  • Both surveys can be found on inclusivemobility.eu. They are available in PDF version so that respondents can have a full overview of the questions before starting. However, answers should always be filled online! The deadline for taking part in this survey is set to the 30 November 2019.

We have also created a presentation that has proven to be effective to stimulate HEIs and some templates (attached) that can be used via email, newsletter, Linkedin and Twitter. They can easily be adapted to the specific country/partner context (now focusing on the Flemish context). 

Feel free to use them if needed!

For information, SIHO and ESN will also present the surveys during the EAIE conference next week (the EAIE is the biggest conference on Internationalisation of Higher Education in Europe). If some of you are attending this conference, feel free to drop by our session and/or come to get some flyers about the EPFIME project. All support is welcome! We will also present the IMA recommendations to all Higher Education staff that will join us for this session.
