Centre of Expertise Global and Inclusive Learning

Lifelong learning brings lifelong happiness
About

Creating and ensuring equal opportunities for students and professionals. At the Centre of Expertise for Global and Inclusive Learning we research what processes would help to achieve this. We’re also looking into the best ways to actively promote inclusive education and an inclusive society. We support each learning individual in their talent development to enable them to become responsible professionals and critical citizens.

We study, work and live in a complex and global society in which not everyone is given the same opportunities. A society that is always changing through for example technological developments, and where many wicked issues are at play, such as climate adaptation, migration and integration. Education has to be responsive yet frequently lags behind. That must change. The Hague University of Applied Sciences functions as an incubator, thinktank and lab where learning and development play a role. Using practice-oriented research, debates, dialogue and out-of-the-box thinking, the Centre of Expertise for Global and Inclusive Learning promotes learning processes and exposes hidden assumptions, attitudes and behaviour.  

The centre strives for sustainable innovation within education and beyond by focusing on topics such as global citizenship, talent development, inclusive education, internationalisation at home and practical wisdom within the professional field. Everything is centred around professional and personal development: to last a lifetime.

Internationalisation at Home activities in different academic disciplines

Internationalisation at Home activities in different academic disciplines

This study aims to establish how Internationalisation at Home (IaH) is implemented in different disciplinary categories based on the concept of academic tribes, if certain IaH activities are prioritised over others, and what rationales are applied in the choices of IaH activities in different disciplines. A range of degree programmes at THUAS, representing the different disciplinary categories, have been selected for this study to explore patters (if any) in their choices of IaH activities

PowerHouse gives educationally vulnerable students self-confidence

PowerHouse gives educationally vulnerable students self-confidence

How can we help long-term students (students exceeding the specified course duration) rediscover their self-esteem? The umpteenth resit of an exam and an ever increasing study backlog have a devastating effect on a student's self-confidence. In collaboration with the Inclusive Education research group, we have initiated the PowerHouse project to develop active learning communities in which educationally vulnerable students learn to overcome their limitations.

Men at Work

‘We are having trouble recruiting young men and keeping them in the Social Work and Education degree programme.’ This has been an ongoing issue for several years and the research group was asked to help think of a solution. Instead of a top-down approach, the research group wanted to work bottom-up in a network-oriented manner and wondered who the initial experts would be to help think about the solution. Of course, these were the students themselves. Naturally, also the staff members — in education as well as other staff members, alumni and the professional field.

Student Branch project: Hang in there

Hang in thereThe Hang In There Project is an initiative organised by the Student Branch of the Inclusive Education research group and is aimed at supporting students in the adventure of their first year at The Hague University of Applied Sciences. Here students share their experiences and how they have overcome obstacles. We also ask students to share their own experiences. Students participating in this project will receive supportive messages from time to time and a reminder that they are not alone. We support our students in their chosen adventure at The Hague University of Applied Sciences. Hang In There!
