Welcome to project LIB(e)RO!
Helping minor refugees getting started in Europe, learning a new language and finding their own way in a new social and cultural context – this is the aim of setting-up an e-learning-platform within project LIB(e)RO.
To further the integration of minor refugees, the project partners from Austria, Germany and Greece aim at making use of the potential of libraries as socially inclusive learning spaces, which provide ideal conditions for language acquisition as well as intercultural understanding.
Final meeting of the project partners and official presentation of the eLearning platform: Almost two years after the kick-off, the LIB(e)RO project partners met for the last time on 20th September, 2018. The LIB(e)RO eLearning platform then was officially presented during our event at the library of St. Pölten on 21st September. The event was opened with some introductory remarks by our project coordinator Dr. Filiz Keser Aschenberger (Danube University Krems), our host Ursula Liebmann (komm.bib) and Landesrat Ludwig Schleritzko. The platform itself was presented by Marielle Ratter (University of Passau), who introduced the audience to the structure of the platform and the technical aspects of using LIB(e)RO. After a short coffee break, the possible uses and the future of LIB(e)RO were
the subject of a discussion between the project partners, participants from the testing and the audience.
