Good Practices in Handling Diversity and Social Inequalities

Insufficient equity in education and subtle forms of exclusion of students and parents with immigrant- or socio-economically underprivileged backgrounds often challenge education specialists. Therefore we collect good ideas from schools and display them on a website to be accessible for as many people as possible.

Insufficient equity in education and subtle forms of exclusion of students and parents with immigrant- or socio-economically underprivileged backgrounds challenge education specialists. Abstract answers to these challenges from theorists often do not help and examples which have been proven useful in practice are rarely known and available. We want to change that by launching the project «Good Practices in Handling Diversity and Social Inequalities».

Searching for «Good Practices» and preparing them for implementation 

In this project, we research and document creative, engaging, and established examples from schools, from teachers, student teachers and school principals. These good practices will be made accessible to other education specialists, and show them how to improve access to equal opportunities and how integration can work in different schools. We are interested in experiences schools made, especially in key aspects that made the implementation successful.

We will gather these good practices in short texts with pictures and innovative podcast episodes and provide them on this website of the University of Teacher Education of Zug. The examples will be corroborated with a summary of corresponding findings from current research.

We intend to create an appealing website to display all findings, so education specialists can quickly find new ideas.

Research and analysis

In addition to the search for good practices we are conducting a research project to fill a gap in current research: What kind of development processes regarding social diversity do individuals undergo? How do these processes correlate with their biographies? Findings from this research will be available in publication and will serve the in-service and pre-service training of teachers. Insights will be accessible on the website as short texts as well.
