Learning Outcomes

- Clarify key concepts of Intercultural Education: Identity, Culture, the Right to Difference, the values of Equity and Interaction
- Explore diversity in Europe with the view to improving quality in adult education: Explore diversity in the societies represented in the course, institutional policies, diversity in the course group, heterogeneity in class, an intercultural approach in teaching

• Generate and answer the relevant questions on diversity
• Apply active listening and communication rules
• Listen to different points of view
• Act like cross-cultural counselor
• Work co-operatively
• Recognize and promote intercultural skills of their learners and of themselves

Methodology
Teaching methodologies have to assure interaction between facilitators and participants and among learners rather than transmit homogenized knowledge or techniques and ask for reproduction. This is especially true when intercultural skills are at question, because they cannot be “learned” in a cognitive approach, but they need to be experienced and developed in interaction.
In accordance with the principles set out above, the training methodology developed for the course will focus on facilitating the objective-based interaction amongst all persons involved. As an intended side effect, participants will experience themselves and reflect on interactive and cooperative learning methods in an intercultural process, which they may consider and adapt for their work purposes.
It is a workshop design that seeks to reach out and include all learning styles by utilizing a wide range of pedagogies, including problem solving, group and pair work, reflective discussion, experiential learning, brief didactic inputs on concepts and theories, and action planning, in order to apply what was learnt. Special attention is given to involve participants’ regional backgrounds and experiences and to facilitate mutual exchange.

Follow-up
In order to facilitate and mutually support participants to apply and disseminate what they have learnt, participants and the trainers will create an e-network as a forum for exchanging ideas, experiences and materials. Networking will enhance the possibilities for further cooperation amongst its members on the basis of new partnerships and/ or projects on intercultural adult education.
