ATLEC students visit Reatech Fair

A group of persons with disabilities with interest in assistive technology and included in the ATLEC competence development programme delivered by AT team of AIAS Bologna in Italy, will visit together with that team the upcoming Reatech fair in Milano, the main AT event in Italy.

“This is the first time that we organise such a combined study trip”, says Evert-Jan Hoogerwerf of the AT team in Bologna. “Normally the AT experts would go for their own professional development, but ATLEC has stimulated us to share our knowledge with the end users of our advice centre on a more equal foot.” The trip has been carefully designed with the participants being invited to explicit their areas of interest and learning needs and AT expert Massimiliano Malavasi travelling to Milano the day before to explore the information offer. The learning needs and wishes, together with the outcomes of the visit to the fair, will be the basis for the further learning of each of the participants.

“The ATLEC curriculum provides us the possibility to design individual learning plans related to a wider framework of coherent learning outcomes at different levels”, declares Hoogerwerf, “and this is exactly what makes the project so exciting”.
