Sharing knowledge, practice and life experiences

Private E-team



EASSW-UNAFORIS 2017 European Conference Workshop 'Side by side, sharing knowledge, practice and life experiences'.


The recognition of indigenous knowledge became part of the core competences of social workers at the university colleges Leuven-Limburg. This was translated into the policy and the curriculum through the participation of experts in poverty and social exclusion. These experts are ‘social inclusion professionals’ who finished a four year course. This NGO aims to train people in the promotion of their personal experience in poverty in professional contexts like federal public services, social work organisations and higher education. From the start lecturers of social work were involved in this project and they occasionally invited the experts in a course or supervision. Currently, the experiential knowledge is imbedded in the curriculum of social work. More specific, lecturers and expert(s) share knowledge, practice and life experiences side by side, as a tandem.
