Tempus CD-JEP-26171-2005 “Multihandicapped People and Inclusive Education”


Tempus CD-JEP-26171-2005 “Multihandicapped People and Inclusive Education”

The project is aimed at establishment of inclusive education system for young people with multiple disabilities and providing training opportunities for the staff involved.

Integration of children with disabilities into general education classrooms is a challenge that calls for new knowledge and skills related to teaching people with different educational needs.

Currently, implementation of the inclusive education model in Russia is hindered by different obstacles: insufficient legislative base of inclusive education, lack of teaching methodologies and resources, insufficient competence of staff, and psychological barriers in the society are among them.

The Postsecondary Education Network-International (PEN-International) funded by The Nippon Foundation of Japan aims at improving and expanding postsecondary education for deaf and hard-of-hearing students around the world by sharing educational technology and conducting faculty development and training.

The goals for PEN-International are to train faculty for improving, teaching and learning, to apply innovative instructional technologies to the teaching/learning environment, to provide state-of-the-art equipment to international partners, to promote program self-sufficiency, and to expand career opportunities for deaf and hard-of-hearing students. PEN-International's vision is to assist partner institutions in the move from importers to self-sufficiency to exporters of knowledge and skills within their respective home countries. Establishing an international network is the first step in achieving this end.

The long-term goal of the project is to influence attitudes, practices and policies in the information technology industry so that people who are deaf and hard of hearing are not blocked from access to technology or employment in the industry.

This international partnership unites universities of Japan, the USA, Russia, China, Vietnam, the Philippines, Korea, Czech Republic, and Thailand.
