“Internationalization at home” –⁠ Foreign experts lecture social work students

During the winter semester, the FSS UO welcomed several foreign professors. The students discussed with foreign experts, for example, the non-profit sector and volunteering in the USA or child welfare and protection services in the UK.

The international SEKEHE project has started. FSS UO will be a leader of collaboration in the implementation of experiential knowledge in higher education

Ostrava, together with three foreign institutions, will become one of the key locations on the map of social innovation in higher education. FSS UO, the project leader of the international consortium, will gradually work on introducing new forms of co-teaching involving people with lived experience.
