Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences kindly invites international students and teachers to join an inter-professional study group at the School of Healthcare Studies during the international week Urban Health. This one-week program runs twice a year.
“We are at an unprecedented moment in human development as the greatest migration in history unfolds around us. Less than a decade ago a majority of humankind still lived in the countryside, yet today a clear majority live in urban areas. In 2030, 60% of all people will reside in cities, proportionally twice that of 1950. For most of us from now on, life and death will be an urban aff air.
The global community was not only waking up to this new demographic reality and the consequent implications for health, society, and economic and political aff airs, but also to a host of new opportunities as humans shape and are shaped by an urban future.”
(World Health Organization, 2016)

Diversity and Social inclusion (DiSI)
Diversity and Social Inclusion is a program of study aimed at enhancing awareness of different kinds of social inequalities rooted in many different ways of diversity in our contemporary societies, including those related to digital poverty and the usage of innovative technologies in health care.
It will support the development of core competences in future educators, health care professionals and social workers with the help of an already piloted interdisciplinary model (ICIC) based on blended learning approach.
This model could improve the sensibility to differences in cultural, socio-economic and health status, and the unequal distribution of social resources.
The organisation of the course consists of two modules. The expected outcomes of a preparatory assignment (module 1) based on distance learning will result in a 5-day intensive program (module 2) with activities taking place in a multi-professional and multicultural context in Vic, Spain.
From disability into ability: experience based learning in real context
This course is aimed at students from undergraduate programmes of health and social sciences, who are interested in exploring their potential, as future professionals, to enhance the abilities of people in different circumstances.
It is an opportunity to, with real client groups, develop your own competences in transforming disadvantages into advantages and create a more equal society.
