W2: Recognition of prior learning

The event will take place on Wednesday, October 25, at 4 p.m. (CET).
NOKUT and the University of Bari will share their experience in the field.

«Recognition of prior learning: obstacles, strategies and ideas to promote the access to higher education for refugee students» was the title for the second webinar organized by the University of Barcelona within the inHERE project (Higher Education Supporting Refugees in Europe). It took place on Wednesday, October 25, 2017, at 4 p.m. (CET).

The aim of the seminar was to share the experience of three institutions that are working on the recognition of prior learning of refugee students and discuss about the different situations and strategies that Higher Education Institutions (HEI) are facing throughout the recognition process.

The speakers were:

  • Marina Malgina, head of section for the recognition of refugees’ qualification in NOKUT (Norwegian Agency for Quality Assurance in Education)
  • Amelia Manuti, responsible for the certification of skills at the CAP of the University of Bari (Italy) and
  • Samir Heco, project assistant at the Council of Europe

The webinar was held in English and is aimed at members of university communities (teaching staff or PDI, administration and service staff or PAS, and students) who carry out or want to carry out any project or activity in order to ease the access to HEI for the refugees, as well as their social integration. The event was also opened to those in the University community who are interested in these initiatives.

Webinars are framed within the second part of this project, the Living Lab, which is led by the University of Barcelona. Their purpose is to share, exchange, assess and create joint initiatives, projects and activities for the university community to promote the integration of the refugee students in HEI.
