SSESW colleague Professor Karola Dillenburger was at Masaryk University in Brno to teach a cohort of 100 students on the 3rd Registered Behaviour Technician course.  Her visits to the Czech Republic, ongoing since 2015, are part of the EU-funded Erasmus+ exchange programme between Queen’s University and Masaryk University.  The programme aims to bring the science of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) to the Czech Republic.

While there, Karola also attended the opening seminar of the Skola Lyckova in Prague, the first ABA school in the Czech Republic.  Guests at the opening included staff, parents and local academics.  Karola will return to Masaryk University in spring 2018 to continue to deliver the first Czech BACBA-validated course sequence, to prepare local students to become Board Certified Behaviour Analysts.
