How to support students with specific needs

Pedagogical competencies

MU lecturers, students of doctoral study programmes


language of the event

How do people with disabilities study? What does all the dys- (and is there even a hard y) mean? What do students who have any of the learning disabilities probably experience? What is it like to have problems that may not appear at first glance? And how can you, as teachers, help them?

You may have your own experience of challenging schooling due to reading, work rate, or attention problems, or you know someone who does. This hands-on workshop will give you a first-hand experience of what it is like and how you can better understand and help learners with disabilities.
