IT supported training and coaching for cross-cultural competences
Start date: Dec 1, 2010,
The objective of the project is to assist those undergoing geographical and social mobility to better cope with the difficulties inherent in border crossing. Because mobility produces cultural contact zones (territories in between different cultural influences) where orientation becomes problematic, it remains a risky enterprise. Thus, we propose to develop, test and transfer a complex, IT-supported guidance methodology to help transform mobility into a positive experience.Primary target groupbeneficiaries of international mobility programs or young adults interested in mobilitymembers of disadvantaged social or ethnic minority groups, 2nd and 3rd generation migrants, migrants Secondary target groupadult trainers, coaches, counselors, guidance practitioners, experts in lifelong learningOutputs- An on-line competence assessment tool adapted to the target group - An intercultural training course for adult learners belonging to the target group- A counseling methodology in the form of a tool kit and process-map - Implementation of a pilot counseling project in each participating country - A training course for adult trainers in order to transfer the methodology- Dissemination and multiplication tools (web page, information brochures, professional days, conference, handbook) Short term - 40 members of the primary direct target group involved in the elaboration of the project- 40 adult learners receiving coaching - A potentially unlimited number of people accessing the on-line tools- (20) members of the primary and (20) secondary target group receiving training- 400 persons (potential multipliers) directly updated about the results of the project (+ more 1800 informed)Long term - mobility can become an experience of personal and professional fulfillment for more - communication in cultural contact zones become less conflictual (marginalized citizens experience less exclusion)- Innovative guidance practices available
