BIDA: Becoming Intercultural Diversity Ambassadors
The one-week summer school was the last phase of the two-semester blended learning course "Becoming Intercultural Diversity Ambassadors - BIDA", which Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg conducted together with its African partner universities, Mount Kenya University (Kenya), the Institute of Finance Management (Tanzania) and the University of Zambia (Zambia).
- Online block courses in November 2022
- Two-week BIDA Spring School in Tanzania (IFM) and Kenya (MKU) from 18 February to 5 March 2023
- One-week BIDA Summer School at H-BRS from 7 to 14 May 2023
Between the first two phases, the students worked online in intercultural teams on the diversity dimensions of age, religion and gender to develop proposals for measures, which they presented in the form of posters during the Spring School. In preparation for the Summer School, the groups were reshuffled and the students exchanged ideas in advance.
The core of the one-week Summer School, which took place at the university from 7 to 14 May, was the conception and implementation of four individual events by the BIDA students for the RESPECT! diversity day on 11 May 2023.
The programme offered enough space to prepare the events in group work. It was supplemented by guest lectures, such as from the DHL Diversity Team or HelpAge Germany, as well as visits to the cities of Bonn and Cologne and courses such as Intercultural Communication.
A highlight for the students was the hybrid conference "Virtual Mobility for All - ViMoAll" at the end of the Summer School on 13 May. The students organised the World Café "Blended Learning in a Global Context" and presented BIDA's blended learning course concept in the form of a poster.
