The  aim of the international course on Intercultural Education is to provide teachers and school managers/headmasters with the skills to  contribute to the implementation  of an  inclusive school, a school promoting a culture of coexistence and intercultural dialogue enhancing diversity, of whatever nature they may be (diversity of language and culture, thought, skills, gender and sexual orientation, etc.)

The course has the following impact on the participants:
- development of intercultural competence.

During the course the trainers will foster an active involvement of the participants in workgroups activities and in knowledge sharing experiences according to a practical approach.
The training course methodology will be based on:
- Non formal learning methodologies, approaches and methods which focus on the attitudes, knowledge, understanding and skills.  
- Experiential learning methods. The trainers will act to stimulate learners’ intellectual understandings but also to address their emotional feelings and participation attitudes. 
-  “Transformative learning approach” where the expert at first does not give new methods but support teachers to reframe, describe and formalize the practices that they use in everyday life in the classroom, based on the assumption that they need to reflect on their perspectives, stereotypes and falsified representations of the educational process, before approaching new methods. 
- Group work and Co‑operative learning where learners work together to achieve a common goal in a respectful, appropriate and effective way, is a particularly apt method in order to develop intercultural competencies. 
The course programme is organized in 6 days, Monday to Saturday, 5 hours a day. Participants should arrive in Florence on Sunday and depart the following Sunday.
The classroom-based programme is integrated with cultural activities such as a guided walking tour of Florence city and social dinner. Detailed information will be provided about optional opportunities for cultural visits in Tuscany.
