Intercultural Competences: Stage-managing intercultural interaction

Learn the latest skills

The main focus of this course is to develop and enhance intercultural competences by developing knowledge, skills and attitude for fruitful stage-management of intercultural interaction in the classroom, within the school and during international projects.

Sequentially, we recognize the significance of some of the topics and the following are discerned as focal: culture - having a better understanding of the concept and its complexity, defining and deconstructing intercultural competences - self-awareness and reflection on own attitudes, skills and knowledge, introducing ethnocentrism and ethnorelaltivism as umbrella terms - combating stereotypes and prejudice as main reasons for conflicts and taking first steps towards becoming more interculturally competent, building intercultural competences through internationalization - experiential learning during project exchanges, multiple-identity and more.

The course will offer a kit of different models, tools, study cases and simulation games to support the teacher. Moreover, participants will shadow lessons and learn from success stories of working with immigrant students as well as share best-practices and experiences with their peers.

The added value of the course is that it offers partner search possibilities for KA1, KA2 and eTwinning activities. Additionally, the course offers participation in a virtual EUMIND global project in which European schools collaborate with schools from India.

Target group are coordinators of international projects, the school management, teachers, special education teachers and all other non-teaching experts and staff working in school education, adult education and VET.

The course covers a wide range of topics that schools need to consider and tackle when introducing and securing interculturalism in their environment:

  • understanding culture and its complexity, food for thought: interculturalism vs multiculturalism
  • understanding and defining intercultural competences: importance of self-awareness and curiosity, measuring and reflecting on own intercultural awareness, skills and competences (self-assessment tool, model of intercultural competences)
  • introducing the umbrella concepts of ethnocentrism and ethnorleativism (models of transition, tools to use to avoid judgment - models for processing new and different experiences)
  • interventions to promote intercultural competences in and outside the classroom: understanding the importance of internationalization for building intercultural competences, experiential learning during project exchanges
  • stimulating students and teachers to develop intercultural competences during a project time-line (simulation game)
  • understanding the complexity of identities, introducing new concepts of identity and developing strategies to deal with identities
  • approaching students' identities and awareness of own influence on students’ identities (study-cases)
  • learning how to increase students’ level of participation in the classroom through success stories of immigrant students during the lesson-shadowing and from the peers in different countries (study-cases, intercultural learning toolkit, tools to support teachers working with newcomers, sharing best practices and examples)

The course methodology aspires creating an output. Working individually or in groups on a concrete product to be used in your own school. Participants are given time to develop outputs and the trainers coach and support them throughout the week, if necessary even long after courses have finished as a follow up.
