A Classroom with a Door to the World (Guadeloupe)

Rating: 0/5

Internationalisation of curriculum and national identity

Location: Sainte-Anne, Guadeloupe (France)

The schools should be able to cater for such phenomena as internationalisation of education and support the creation of flexible learning pathways in line with learners' needs and objectives.
However, many teachers come across the dilemma of balance between internationalism and national identity, especially in single nation countries. This course will demonstrate that internationalisation of curriculum significantly enhances national identity. Learning about unique features of their own and other cultures pupils come to increased understanding of their own national identity at the same time developing senses of tolerance and acceptance.
During the course participants will analyse internationalisation strategy and explore various methods and tools creating internationalisation policy for their school.
eTwinning is an important component of the course work where participants share their daily learning ideas. It also serves as monitoring and dissemination tool.
