15.09.2021 | Symposium Creating Equal Opportunities at School

Do you also get the impression that cognitive talent is not well recognized in some groups? Or that (highly) gifted students from less advantaged families don’t perform as well as they could? If these questions interest you, you are cordially invited to the final symposium of the Erasmus+ project Creating Equal Opportunities at School (through teaching academic language) on September 15th, 2021.

Equal opportunities in education: it sounds so obvious, but unfortunately it isn’t. In a three-year project, we developed a teaching program aimed at improving the academic vocabulary of students from disadvantaged backgrounds. We selected students by means of a (partly) non-verbal intelligence test. They were then offered the program if they and the school thought it would have added value. On September 15th, 2021, we will complete our project with a symposium. At our symposium, you can get acquainted with all facets of the project: teachers, researchers, students, school leaders, education experts… All their voices are heard.

Remember to register before September 8th! You will find the registration form at the bottom of this page.

You can sign up to participate online for 10 euros, or you can choose to participate physically for 15 euros including lunch. The location is the Campus Sanderus at the Thomas More University in Antwerpen (Molenstraat 9 2018 Antwerpen). You can reach the campus by public transport or car. On the website of the Thomas More University, you find more information about accessibility and parking.
