On the 17th of January 2017, the kick-off meeting of the Teaching in Diversity Project took place at the headquarters of ECMI (European Centre for Minority Issues), the project’s lead partner. The ten partners of this Erasmus + project met in Flensburg in order to discuss and divide the tasks and responsibilities that the project entails.
In short, the Teaching in Diversity project (or Teach-D project)
focuses on why and how to teach diversity, as well as how to manage diversity in one’s classroom. The goal of the project is to produce a training module as well
as a training package for an online training, which can assist teachers in mitigating intercultural conflicts, be knowledgeable about culture-sensitive learning and facilitate intercultural communication.
The project involves ten partners from nine different countries: European Centre for Minority Issues (ECMI) (coordinator, Germany), Mercator Research Centre of the Fryske Akademy (The Netherlands), European Academy of Bozen/Bolzano (EURAC) (Italy), Workers Education and Training College (WETCO) (Bulgaria), Asociatia Paradigme Educationale, (Romania), Danmar Computers LLC (Poland), Kairos Europe Limited (UK,) Liceul Pedagogic “Mircea Scarlat” Alexandria (Romania), MEDEA: Media and Learning ( Belgium), CSP - Innovazione Nelle ICT (Italy). The project is funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.
