At University College Lillebaelt, the BISI programme is a 5-months programme designed to educate the student in becoming proficient in developing interactive and technological, intelligent applications/solutions based on the student’s knowledge of psychology, ethics, educational theory, and of children and youth with special needs. The semester is organized in a multidisciplinary collaboration between pedagogy, technology and design.

There is a particular focus on social interaction and personal expression, i.e. developing, supporting and strengthening relationships, communication and individual expression. Based on the individual user and in cooperation with the pedagogical practice and pedagogical companies, the potential for development will be identified so the possibility of producing a prototype as an end product can help the user feel seen, heard and understood.

With subjects such as Communication and culture, Educational Theory, Health, Body & Movement etc the student will learn how to enrich the daily lives of children and youth with special needs while becoming a modern social educator with high skills in social education.

Career Opportunities

There are many opportunities for students of social education. Examples could be pedagogical work in the fields of daycare, children and youth with special needs, youth and community work, day nurseries and residential institutions in the social sector. The BISI course will ensure that the student will be adept in strategizing how to develop and design technological solutions for users with disabilities.
