We're like to invite you to attend or do a job-shadowing visit during our KA1 courses on intercultural skills. The next session will be between 24-28th February 2020 and June 2020, and we're open for collaborations for 2021 also.
KA1 COURSE: INCREASING INTERCULTURAL COMPETENCES
Taking into account the current situation with migrants, refugees, asylum seekers and adults with low incomes, teachers and adult educators need to improve their cultural understanding and flexibility skills. In this course, teachers and adult educators will improve their intercultural communication skills, empathy, tolerance and mental and behavioral flexibility. They will also discuss and reflect on concepts such as ethnocentrism, racism, discrimination, segregation etc. and get insights on how to teach them in creative ways. The participants will also increase their cultural awareness by getting familiar with Geert Hofstede’s five cultural dimensions that he developed based on his studies in over 50 countries.
Our standard methodology is based on active learning and it is highly participative and practical. We have a hands on approach that comprises group exercises, role plays and simulation exercises. We use collaborative learning techniques to foster the exchange of good practices and collective learning.
The pedagogical methods used in this training course are based on art-based and learning by doing methodologies. Our focus is on showing the participants how the learners’ motivation increases when they become the actors of their own learning because the teacher takes the role of facilitator or learning guide. Thus, the participants get the chance to experience on themselves the benefits of the active learning methodology at the same time as learning how to apply it in their classroom.
We are a network of educational professionals, non-profit organizations and schools and we collaborate with a wide variety of institutions you can visit.
