Prof. Dr. Nicoleta Acomi, project manager of the STIT project spoke about the opportunities of the Erasmus programme and lifelong learning, with examples from the implementation of the STIT project. The results of the STIT project were explained, including a series of practical demonstrations of the impact that accessibility training can have on trainers, teachers, educators and tutors’ professionality. Among the results:

During the conference, participants discussed the value of the project results to ensure equal access to information, and education as well as equal rights and opportunities for all. In response to the need to integrate accessible tools into classes, Nicoleta Acomi presented flipped classroom methodology and how this was piloted during local focus groups and integrated into classes. Moreover, participants were provided with access to the online training course for VET teachers developed in a highly accessible manner with video lessons and engaging intercative moments.
