The participants observed, experienced and actively participated in a round table meeting, presented and discussed methods on how to best approach learners who are refugees, migrants or belong to another minority group. They discussed the situation in their respective geographical locations, presented experiences and exchanged good practices utilized to combat the issues met. They offered alternatives and discussed the prominent options for each difficulty/barrier encountered. In the end, they worked together to create a presentation showing the results of their discussions, which later led to the drafting of a report, that have been made available on the TeaM project’s website.
