Learning with differences, research into the power of diversity

Learning with differences, research into the power of diversity

By looking for experiences of students from different backgrounds, the research project “Young learning with difference” has gained insight into the power of diversity. The aim of the research was to make these forces visible.

The associated research question; “How do students with different backgrounds and partial identities create a coherent story of their lives, in an increasingly diverse society?”.

The result is illustrated in three products in which the powers of diversity are demonstrated within Hogeschool Utrecht.

Four podcasts
Podcasts about misconceptions that one can experience when the Dutch language is not your mother tongue.

The magazine
Students and staff share their experiences with diversity within and outside the HU community in a magazine.

The film
Students and employees talk about what it is like to study and work at the HU from a diverse background.
