Activity Description:
Have you ever dived into the world of Special Education Needs (SEN)? How was your experience in interacting with people who are labelled as “special”? If you have never had such trial before, or would like to understand them more, we now proudly present to you the “Virtual Diversity SENcation” - it would be an empathy journey to step into their shoes, as well as an eye-opening experience to feel how diverse human beings are.

In this programme, you will get an excellent opportunity to get along with students with SEN and students all around the world. In this virtual journey, you are going to gain inspiring stories and meet new friends through the mission challenges and online seminars - let’s take the initiative to build an inclusive and diversified university community in this fun and fruitful programme!

在此計劃中,你將會認識到來自全球各地的大學生和具有特殊教育需要的學生,並透過一系列精彩的任務挑戰賽和網上研討會與他們深入交流,瞭解彼此的故事和建立國際友誼!邀請你參與是次國際交流旅程,與我們共同建立一個包容、多元的大學環境吧!
