Barriere-sensitive Teaching - know how to!

Hybrid closing conference & specialist conference of the collaborative-participative project Study as you are (STUDYasU)


What it is about

The conference will take place on April 25th and 26th, 2024 and offers the opportunity to exchange ideas on the design of barrier-sensitive, digital-supported teaching and learning scenarios. The focus will be on the question of how diverse learning needs can be taken into account in the design.

How can we meet diverse learning needs appropriately? What opportunities do digital, hybrid and digitally supported teaching/learning opportunities offer for my heterogeneity-sensitive lessons?

The conference offers you the opportunity to perceive the individual learning needs of pupils and students anew, to weigh them up and to incorporate them into teaching/learning arrangements in the sense of a digitally supported heterogeneity-sensitive approach. The STUDYasU project at the EUF, together with (inter)national cooperation partners, presents its results from over two years of research and testing of concrete recommendations for action and materials for teaching and learning. In a variety of workshops, contributions and student projects, we show and develop how barrier-sensitive, language-sensitive and digitally supported teaching/learning arrangements help to meet a wide range of diverse learning needs (DLN).

(Inter)national experts will offer workshops on AI and inclusion, barriers and resources in inclusive learning settings and easy language. As an example of barrier-sensitive teaching and learning materials, templates and handouts developed by the STUDYasU Study Office for Barrier-Sensitive Service (STUBBS), among others, will be made available. Students actively enrich the event with their projects and impulses.

Catering as well as hot and cold drinks will be provided. There will also be an evening snack on 25.04. We look forward to seeing you!

All contributions will be offered in a hybrid format. This means that people connected digitally can participate equally in the workshops.

The conference is aimed equally at students, teachers at schools and universities, academics and all interested parties from all areas.

Due to the cooperation with the Center for Teacher Training at the European University of Flensburg (ZfL), participation is an official further training course for teachers. Please register for this under "Registration with Formex".

We look forward to your participation!

Inclusion and ICT: Digital inequalities and social participation

Keynote Prof. Dr. Ingo Bosse

Building Helsinki | Digtial

Digital media and technologies are constantly offering new opportunities for shaping equal opportunities in education. Information and communication technologies (ICT) can be a key driver of innovation, as is currently becoming clear with AI technologies. The potential is diverse and skills in dealing with ICT are a prerequisite for equal participation in an increasingly digital society. From the perspective of special needs education, this also raises the question of whether digital and therefore social inequalities are being reproduced or newly created. The keynote speech will take stock of the following questions:
  • Why is it important to work in a digitally inclusive way?
  • What do we know about the use of digital media by vulnerable groups?
  • Where have unequal uses arisen?
  • Where do we stand in terms of the accessibility and usability of ICT?
  • Where do we stand in the digital transformation of inclusive education?
  • Where do we stand in the inclusive design of media education?
  • In addition to determining the current situation, the aim is to work out what significance digital trends such as AI could have for further development.

    Exploring barriers and resources together in inclusive educational settings - "See the person, not the disability"

    Laura Schwörer (educational specialist)

    Building Helsinki

    The educational experts from the Institute for Inclusive Education of the Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel used to work in a workshop for people with disabilities. Today, they talk to students about their experiences with disabilities and share their ideas for learning and living together. Based on the experiences of the education professionals about learning and working together during their time at school, concrete barriers become visible. In the workshop, we work together to develop ideas for breaking down these barriers and focus on resources.

    Artifical Intelligence and Inclusion

    Dr. Lea Schulz & Uwe Neuhaus

    Building Helsinki

    At a time when technological advances are profoundly changing education, this workshop is aimed at educators who strive to promote an inclusive learning environment. The term "diclusion", an innovative fusion of diversity and inclusion, forms the foundation for an educational concept that does justice to each individual student and integrates them on an equal footing. This approach takes on particular significance through the integration of artificial intelligence (AI), such as ChatGPT, into the educational process. The workshop introduces the core concepts of diclusion and shows how teachers can create a diclusive learning environment through the use of AI. The focus will be on the various ways in which teachers can customize and enrich their lessons. Practical examples will illustrate how these innovative methods can make education fairer, more accessible and more efficient.

    Easy language is not easy in the school context

    André Delor

    Building Helsinki

    The aim of the workshop is to gain an insight into the possibilities of simple and easy language, using examples to highlight the similarities and differences between these language varieties. We will look at which target groups these languages were originally created for and with which objectives, which target groups they are also suitable for and how this can be used in a school context. Participants in the workshop will receive impulses for their practice and will be sensitized to the possibilities of simple communication.

    Design barrier-sensitive teaching & learning materials

    Franca Becker & Kaja Balck, student assistants at STUDYasU

    Building Helsinki

    Barrier-sensitive teaching and learning materials enable a broad and diverse student and pupil population to participate in teaching. Word documents, PowerPoints: In this hands-on workshop, we/you will learn how easy it is to make digital teaching barrier-sensitive.

    Please bring your own device for active participation.

    Development of a convolutional network for the classification of images and implementation in an app

    Dr. Stefan Pietrusky

    Building Helsinki

    Immerse yourself as a participant in the exciting world of machine learning. In this workshop, Dr. Stefan Pietrusky will show you how to use Colab to develop a simple convolutional network that is able to classify images based on features. From theory to practice, you will learn how to create such a network using Python, Keras and TensorFlow, train it on an example dataset and finally integrate it into an app using Android Studio. Use this opportunity to expand your teaching content and get your students excited about the increasingly important fields of machine learning, artificial intelligence and neural networks. No prior knowledge is required, but Android Studio and a Colab account are necessary for active participation.

    A laptop (only Android possible) is required for active programming.

    Autism as part of the educational vita. Personal perspectives and strategies for individual handling

    Julian Leske

    Building Helsinki

    As part of the workshop "Autism as part of the educational vita. Personal perspectives and strategies for individual handling", we will talk about the needs of autistic people in a school context and try to develop possible approaches. Based on personal experiences in the education system, for example, we will look at the requirements of certain situations at school. Important: Every person on the autistic spectrum has individual needs

    Behind the scenes of learning with visual impairment: An autobiographical look at my school days

    Niels Luithardt

    Building Helsinki

    The now blind speaker looks back on his school days as a visually impaired pupil at mainstream schools. Embark on a journey back in time to a world in which "inclusion" is still a foreign word and visually impaired pupils are an exception rather than a reality of life.

    With a twinkle in his eye, he reports on creative but also overwhelmed teachers and classmates who have to learn to deal with the new challenging situation just like the visually impaired speaker.

    Studying with child(ren) - a question of compatibility

    Jana Rosebrock

    Building Helsinki

    The aim of this workshop is to illustrate what everyday life is like for people who are primarily responsible for looking after one or more children alongside their studies. Together, we want to think about the possibilities and limitations of balancing children and studies, raise awareness of specific challenges and look at what support students and teaching staff can receive in implementing more family-friendly studies.
