Big data, food safety standards, tales in Valencian, gender equality, diversity. These are just some of the topics that will be addressed in the upcoming edition of Winter Courses that the Vice Rectorate for Culture at the Miguel Hernández University of Elche (UMH) has put together. These courses will be taught between December 2021 and May 2022; in this edition, there are 42 courses in all, of which 13 will be taught in person on the campuses of Elche, Sant Joan d’Alacant, and Orihuela Desamparados. The remaining 29 courses will be taught online over the university virtual campus.

UMH Winter Courses are a forum for learning and debate, whose topics and contents are complementary to more formal university disciplines. They offer perspectives that are generally not addressed in other university classrooms, and they enable students to enhance skills that are distinct from those acquired in regulated training. Furthermore, these courses contemplate the educational needs of different institutions and organizations within the public & private sectors, civil society too, that make up the social fabric of which the UMH is a part.

In this Winter Courses edition, it is worth noting that thanks to initiatives by the Language Office; Office of Culture, Equality and Diversity; and the Saint Crispín Chair of Shoemakers, as well as by collaboration from the city halls of Torrevieja and Pilar de la Horadada, some courses are being offered free of charge or with reduced fees. These courses represent the will of the UMH to continue with its commitment to offer training and awareness in the Valencian language, on equality, and diversity, in addition to highlighting strategic issues linked to its institutional chairs.
