Teachers will learn how to make changes in a simple way in the everyday routines and deep ones in long term school culture and community.
In this course we will address issues such as boosting critical thinking. The first step is being aware of the institutionalized discrimination and the influence that our culture and ethnocentrism have on us. Once in this point, we will be able to make more inclusive choices and work with strategies to build cultural inclusiveness education.
We’ll share dynamics, examples and methodologies to integrate, attend and take advantage of the diversity in the classroom in different subjects and within shared leisure spaces.
Participants in this course will understand human beings behaviour and develop their skills and competences on how to motivate teamwork, build bridges with the community and manage complex long-term projects to foster social cohesion, peaceful coexistence and diversity.
The approach will be practical and experiential, based on the analysis of reality and the concerns of the group.
We will mainly work through group exchange and in small groups, encouraging reflection and creativity in order to increase the options and alternatives for action. We will also work through role plays, case analysis and group dynamics.
Every day participants will dedicate some time to reflect on their own improvement plan and the actions they may take in terms of multicultural and intercultural education. In addition to their commitment, participants will be required to promote their actions through online platforms as well as to create professional and community support networks.
