Housing Europe along with the other partners of the Designing Inclusion (DESINC) project proudly present a unique MOOC aiming to promote action learning for inclusion. Hosted on the Open Knowledge platform of the Politecnico Milano, the course- held in English is open to students and teachers for free until 13 January 2019. Housing Europe Migration & Integration Policy Assistant, Abderrahim Khairi has contributed with a lecture focusing on the challenges and opportunities of housing refugees and migrants in Europe.
The Course explains how to develop planning, urban and architectural design teaching or training initiatives with an action-oriented approach, by describing the meaning, and possible methods and tools of Action Learning. It focuses specifically on the engagement with vulnerable and marginalised populations.

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:
- Demonstrate critical awareness about the role and practice of designers and planners working with communities;
- Explore a variety of methods and tools for enacting an Action Learning project;
- Acquire methods and tools which will enable you to design an Action Learning initiative and evaluate its outcomes in relation to both learners and communities.
