Training program for the IncEdu project

The Masaryk University, Czech Republic, a partner University of the IncEdu project is responsible for helping the Sri Lankan partner Universities to identify equipment and assistive technology required for teaching students with disabilities. 

They are also responsible for providing the knowledge and skills required to create a conducive academic environment for students with disabilities. “Developing Inclusive Education for students with disabilities in Sri Lankan Universities" (IncEdu) is an Erasmus+ capacity building project (Key Action 2) running from 2019-2022. The project is implemented by a consortium of 4 universities from Sri Lanka and 3 universities from Europe, including Transilvania University of Brasov, as a partner.

Masaryk University conducted a training program for project members from 4 Sri Lankan partner Universities from 9-13 May 2022 at the Special Needs Centre of their University. 16 academic and non-academic members from the Universities of Peradeniya, Ruhuna and SLTC participated in the training physically while members from the Eastern University participated online.  On their return, participants of the program are planning to conduct training programs for the university staff and the students and outside members on request. This will open new opportunities to a neglected group of students in these universities.
