Workshop Dilemma Game

How do we make our university a place where everyone can thrive? Join this workshop to find out. We will play together the Dilemma Game, and you will get an opportunity to discuss several real-life dilemmas, put yourself in the shoes of others, reflect on different actions and take a stand. This activity will be in English. The maximum number of participants is 20. 

Workshop Pronouns

A practical workshop about effective use of pronouns in the classroom: How to create an inclusive learning environment for everyone. Pronouns, an essential part of the identity of LGBTIQ+ persons, contribute significantly to a comfortable and safe learning and working environment. In this workshop we will discuss the importance of using inclusive language and explore techniques for incorporating a more accurate and aware use of pronouns into classroom activities and discussions.
