The idea of this set of Intercultural and Inclusive Key Competences for professionals in science engagement is to provide an overview of relevant and helpful competences and skills for working with marginalised groups of adult migrants and refugees. It is an extensive, but, of course, not complete list of competences and skills, that we as practitioners have found valuable. The compilation of intercultural key competences is one of several resources being elaborated within the PISEA Project. The two other resources will be a set of training modules on selected intercultural key competences for science engagement staff, in particular for facilitators and educators, and a handbook on pilot science engagement activities done by the partners in order to test innovative formats, methods, activities in working with marginalised groups of migrants or refugees and share both, good practise and experiences on these activities.
This compilation is supposed to serve as:
– An introduction for institutions and individuals who want to make their science engagement activities more inclusive for diverse audiences, or who want to work with marginalised groups of adult migrants and refugees, who face educational, economic, social, cultural, language or other barriers towards informal science learning and science engagement.
– A framework for identifying training needs of educators/facilitators and other staff in science engagement institutions, working in the context of diversity and social inclusion.
– A framework for identifying needs for structural changes and other development measures at institutional level in science engagement institutions in the context of diversity and social inclusion
