In today’s mobile and fast-paced world, schools have already become spaces for multicultural interaction, and intercultural (communicative) competences should now be developed within schools and beyond.
The self-learning course on "Intercultural School Development" offers tools to reflect on opportunities and obstacles when further enhancing the truly intercultural character of an educational institution.
An Innovative framework of five weeks of short daily lessons that can be followed at one’s own pace will guide learners and embark educators on a step by step journey towards the development of a practical Action Plan that would transform educational institutions into more inclusive, participative and democratic places, that genuinely respect and promote cultural diversity and interculturalism in accordance with Council of Europe values.
The course embodies Competences for Democratic Culture principles, includes relevant references to the Council of Europe’s educational acquis and is designed using the most up-to-date on-line learning techniques and an entertaining learning environment supported by out-of-the-box solutions and accompanying visuals.
This course is the first in a series of re-visited self-learning LEMON courses that are targeting three distinct groups of educational stakeholders: general public, education professionals and policy makers.
