This project is meant to focus on the intercultural element of citizenship education and it aims to provide guidelines for teacher education in this area.
It intends to follow three main steps:
(1) document analysis;
(2) curriculum analysis;
(3) an empirical study.
This project aims to establish links between official documents, curriculum management and the teachers' experiences, interests and expectations with regard to Citizenship Education, with a special focus on the intercultural dimension, in order to make general and specific recommendations as far as teacher education in this area is concerned.
The purpose of this project is to contribute to the effective implementation of official guidelines on this matter and to the expansion of good practices that have been scattered in the schools.
This project is meant to map out, in each of the participant countries, the teacher development programmes and postgraduate courses that can offer relevant education for educators, as far as the intercultural dimension of citizenship is concerned, and to assess them in the light of the reviewed bibliography, of the official guidelines, at the European and national guidelines, and of the teachers' voices.
