Innovative training to manage multicultural classes – KA2 Strategic Partnership

Innovative training for multicultural classes is a 2-year project of the Erasmus Plus Strategic Partnership programme (October 2016-2018) aiming at creating an innovative e-learning for educators from all over Europe facing the issue of multicultural classes.

The online training will focus on two main aspects: awareness-raising activities on multiculturalism, interculturalism and diversity, and CLIM methodology (Cooperative Learning in Multicultural Classes) to be applied in classes.

The partnership is composed by six organizations: Multikultura (Poland), Euphoria (Italy), Hominem Challenge (Spain), Ifall (Sweden), Sans Frontiers Europe (Malta) and UCLL (Belgium).

During the project a crucial aspect will be the involvement and engagement of the educational world. The project team will collect feedback and input to create a very useful tool for all type of educators facing multicultural classes therefore schools will be involved to test the new product and make it more effective. Moreover, a specific campaign will be launched to make the platform known all over Europe and available to European schools as soon as the e-learning will be ready to use (approximately June 2018).

The objectives of the project are:

– Equip teachers with relevant skills and competences through the design of an innovative training based on how to manage multiculturalism in classrooms;

– Create a safe, inclusive, accepting and successful learning environment for all, increasing awareness of global issues, strengthening intercultural awareness;

– Encourage critical thinking and preventing prejudice and discrimination among students.
