Introduction to the course
Who is it for?
This self-study online course is for educators and youth workers who would like guidance in working with the Autobiography of Intercultural Encounters (AIE).
Who and what inspired it?
The course was inspired by the enthusiasm of teachers, teacher trainers and youth workers who have already worked with the AIE and explored its potential for fostering intercultural competence and citizenship values in the people they work with. They prompted the idea of developing an online course that would encourage others working in education to engage with the AIE and its philosophy, enable an international community of AIE users to emerge and thereby add an international dimension to their professional identities.

What does the course contain?
We have created activities around the key concepts and theory underpinning the AIE to help you explore the affordances of this pedagogical tool for learning through reflection on personal intercultural experiences.
