Homework HUB is a space intended for students for the undisturbed process of studying, where they have everything they need, such as computers and the Internet, and it was opened in Sarajevo, more precisely in the Pofalici settlement, a few years ago. Mirza Rastoder, one of the founders of HUB Homework, said that students, in addition to studying and socializing, also have the opportunity for informal education.
As he says, the concept of this HUB follows European trends and offers students what they might not be able to find at colleges or in ordinary reading rooms.
”All HUB members have the opportunity to get to know the new concept of learning, without stiffness and excessive silence, as in standard reading rooms, all the necessary technical and other equipment they need during their studies, be it laptops, microscopes, 3D printers, interactive whiteboards, as well as adequate literature,” explained Rastoder.
As he added, it is an indescribable experience as HUB members are students from different faculties and universities from all over Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), so the exchange of experiences and knowledge is at a high level.
”Since last year, Homework HUB has become a 24/7 on-call place for studying where special cards are used, and also hourly options are available, so everyone can choose what suits them,” told Rastoder.
As he added, HUB Homework does not have any cooperation with the University of Sarajevo, so those students do not enjoy any privileges, unlike those from the university who have signed contracts with them.
”We sincerely hope that things will change if we want to create a society of young people, those young people who are socially responsible, educationally and scientifically committed,”Rastoder said.
As he said, almost 12.000 students have passed through the premises of Homework so far, and it can be said that the idea and concept of the work are well recognized.
Realization of the project
Homework HUB cooperates with the International University in Sarajevo, University “Dzemal Bijedic” Mostar, Science and Technology Park and University in Novi Sad, KadirHas University from Istanbul and Trinity College Dublin.
”We are focused on all activities of gender equality in higher education, where we are currently implementing a project to create gender equality plans for the student population of Canton Sarajevo (CS), which as such will be the first in Europe,” said Rastoder, Avaz reports.
