Today we handed in our application for Europe`s Media Prize for Integration and Cultural Diversity: The Civis Competition 2019. The CIVIS Media Prize committee is based in Cologne and annually recognizes European programme contributions on radio, film, television and the Internet. The institution focuses on the following topics: Migration, integration and cultural diversity in Europe.
The project (Teach-D) has been running since 2017. It addresses the topic of diversity management at school and focuses on teachers as key actors in the process of knowledge and value transfer at school. In contrast to numerous initiatives that provide teachers with competences of how to teach diversity, this project focused successfully on why we should teach diversity and how to manage diversity within the classroom or any other pedogeological institution.
The outcome was, amongst others, the Teach-D online training course, which has been developed in close cooperation with our international project partners. The online training course offers 6 training modules for individuals and is accessible online for free at http://www.teach-d.eu/online-training/.
Due to the number of compliments we have received on the online training course, we decided to give it a try and send it to Cologne – fingers crossed!
In this context we would like to thank our partners and supporters for their close cooperation, and we hope to see you again soon.
PS: in 2019 the ECMI is offering tailor-made training courses, both in-house and at various locations. Feel free to contact us!
