Our role in the VIS A VIS project
Throughout the project, we will monitor and evaluate the quality of project activities’ implementation and their results. With the participation of individual partners in the consortium, project cooperation will ensure that all results and achievements of the project will be completed on time, within the expected scope and with satisfactory quality.
We are the bearers of this working group. We will participate in preparing a model of support and assistance for employees in education, where we will develop new learning approaches, strategies, and learning and teaching methods for people with autism. We will organize lectures for education and training employees and employers and participate in the implementation with our lecturers. The lectures will take place on the premises of our faculty. We will participate in organizing and implementing the study visit of our Norwegian partner SPISS in Slovenia, which will include thematic meetings and a lecture by the Norwegian partner. We will participate in the evaluation and final analysis of the usefulness of this newly developed model of support for employees in education and employment. Considering our infrastructure, personnel equipment, knowledge and experience, it will be possible to place the model in the higher education space and give it quality and validity.
We will participate with other partners in media events, inform about project activities via our website and take care of the dissemination of project results. We will also look for possibilities for the continuity of the educational model implementation even after the project’s completion.
