Dialog durch Bildung
Start date: Jun 1, 2015,
End date: May 31, 2016
The project "Dialogue through Education" is based on the current needs of the HochVier training staff which mainly works with disadvantaged and job seeking citizens, migrants and administrative staff in the rural regions of Brandenurg. For HochVier and their training staff it is essential to qualify current educational activities which have been designed to enhance educationally disadvantaged citizens and to qualify the social integration of migrants as well as to sensitize administrative staff . This will be achieved through corresponding trainings with experienced partners. It is essential to acquire additional skills and innovative, attractive and suitable learning methods for working with the mentioned target groups in order to establish successful and sustainable educational activities as well as for the conception of new educational projects. Based on these necessities the project was designed by HochVier in cooperation with its educational staff. The project´s intention is to provide cross-border training opportunities for adult education trainers working with the relevant target groups and the relevant subjects.
The project activities have been selected by relevance and innovation and include 3 mobility activities:
Activity 1: "Artistic and creative teaching methods" with "Mafalda" in Graz. The workshop program trains adult educators regarding creative and artistic methods and approaches to be used within extracurricular educational work with various target groups. Particulary special dramaturgical techniques are taught which are suitable to promote social skills, problem solving skills, self-confidence, language skills, ability for personal orientation within society and the labor market of different target groups.
Activity 2: "Overcoming Islamophobia" with "Sinergias, Ideas y Proyectos" in Valencia. The workshop is designed to counteract Islamophobic tendencies in the longer term by teaching the trainers constructive pedagogical mechanisms to combat Islamophobia. The participants get to know methods to raise awareness for Muslims, their culture and Islam as a religion.
Activity 3: "Diversity Training" with "Laboratoire pédagogique du Greta du Velay" in Le Puy en Velay
In this workshop participants will be sensitized in their daily work in terms of discriminatory practices in the form of prejudicial acts, stereotyping and exclusionary statements, on the other hand they will get to know approaches and methods for their educational work with different target groups in order to question such deep-rooted patterns.
The trainings are not just focusing on the presentation of new appropriate methods, unconventional training activities and innovative approaches. It also emphasizes the cross-cultural experience, the exchange of information about the structures of extracurricular adult education among colleagues and the encounter with students from the partner organizations. The clear objective is to apply the new skills and information within the current educational work realized on local and regional scope with the relevant target groups and to further assure a sustainable implementation of the training contents in the regular work of HochVier. The diversity and experience of the HochVier training staff and the partner organizations represent ideal conditions for the successful realization of this project.
