Session 05.01

Three demographics, face-to-face: mixed-aged, mixed-nationality summer programmes

  • Thursday 13 Sept
  • Room Q, Level 0, Palexpo
  • Level: all
  • Related Expert Communities Summer Schools

There are successful adult summer programmes, great programmes geared towards the 18–25 student audience, and thousands of international programmes. What happens if you mix all three factors? Mixed-age, mixed-nationality audiences present their own challenges – and rewards. This session will share tales of success, disaster and the completely unexpected from 30 years' experience with mixed-age, international summer programmes, and warmly invites experiences and questions from the audience.
