INTERCULTURALITY

at School

Although we belong to different ethnic, cultural, religious, and linguistic groups, we all live under the same "roof." In order to be able to live TOGETHER, we need to get to know and respect our neighbor, to eliminate the “us” and “them” barriers, to promote common values such as integration, cooperation and tolerance. Through this course you will get to know numerous tools that will help you deal with intercultural environments.

Description

COURSE METHODOLOGY

Our courses, developed in the framework established by the Erasmus+ Programme, are crafted to include both formal and non-formal education methodologies. Starting with a theoretical approach to the theme of the course, we proceed with non-formal learning strategies in order to guarantee and stimulate an active contribution from the participants involved. In practice, we use:

 

Presentations; Analysis of study cases; Discussions in the classroom; Role-plays; Technical visits to local private and public institutions; Conferences with local professionals to exchange good practices; Job shadowing experiences; Workshops to rethink old practices and introduce new ones.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

  • to acquire basic knowledge about conflict in a multicultural environment;

  • to learn about methods to solve intercultural conflicts;

  • to exchange best practices with local teachers and schools on how to mitigate conflict;

  • to rethink your school system to introduce activities that guarantee intercultual understanding;
