ICTaL – Inter-Cultural Teaching and Learning

The objective of the partners co-operating within ICTaL was to increase the intercultural competences and didactic repertoires of educators, particularly among those who teach immigrants.

Background

A need has been felt to improve awareness of intercultural competence and communication in an increasingly multicultural Europe.

Objective

The objective of the partners co-operating within ICTaL was to increase the intercultural competences and didactic repertoires of educators, particularly among those who teach immigrants.

Aims

  • to identify the local specific needs of disseminators and learners
  • to collect and develop examples of best practice in intercultural teaching and learning
  • to exchange experience and examples of best practise within intercultural teaching and learning concerning the immigrants’ countries of origin and destination
  • to publish the results during a workshop performed by all partners for educators from each country and permanently through the home page

A home page has been established, including articles on good practice and theory.  A workshop was organised in Berlin. Partly as a result of this project an application was sent for a project called Co-workers.
