What People Say

I responded to the Novatris call for project proposals in 2019. It enabled me to set up the FIL (French Integration Language) project for residents of the Fonderie neighbourhood in Mulhouse. During this experience, I enjoyed some wonderful encounters and a lot of sharing. I had the support and assistance of NovaTris throughout, and developed a passion for interculturality, as well as improving my intercultural management and project management skills. In addition, this project enabled me to open up more to different cultures and be more sympathetic to the issues inherent to interculturality in education. I am grateful for the trust that NovaTris showed in me and the opportunity to take part in such a great adventure. *Holy Figaro Many, Doctor in Education Sciences at the UHA, developer of the 'FIL’ project

Success story – The Forge of History (Forge de l’Histoire)

The Forge of History was one of the projects selected and supported by NovaTris under the call for pedagogical innovation project proposals.

This initiative, devised by the History and Heritage Department at the UHA, consisted in a series of lectures on the theme “Revolts and Revolutions”.

The lectures were organised by students studying for the Bachelor’s Degree in History and the Masters in History, Civilisations and Heritage with help from a dozen teachers. They explored the opinions of specialists in various fields, all relating to the theme “Revolts and Revolutions”. The lectures were open to the general public but were also part of the model adopted by the History Department.

This led to contacts being forged between the History Departments of the universities in the Upper Rhine.

The project was developed and managed collectively by a dozen lecturer-researchers in the History Department. A wonderful dynamic developed around the project and new series of lectures will be offered on the same model in the future.
