Training at Masaryk University

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.

Masaryk University conducted a training programme 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 programme are planning to conduct training programs for the university staff and the students and outside members on request. This will open up new opportunities to a neglected group of students in these universities.
