The challenges and opportunities of diversity are at the heart of the European project and European schools are increasingly expected to be able to deal with diversity-related issues.
The course “Inside out / Outside in - Building bridges in teacher education through encounters with diversity” addresses the question of diversity in the European classrooms by improving the provision of intercultural competence and understanding in pre- and in-service teacher education.
Within the Erasmus+ programme, university teachers from eight European countries and different disciplines organise a 10-day interdisciplinary course for European teacher students.

INSIGHTS INTO DIMENSIONS OF LEARNING
"This programme really helped me to reflect my life in Finland and also after my return to Taiwan. Especially in my class I practiced what I have learned. This August, I got a chance to be a 'visiting teacher' in a remote area in northern Taiwan. It is very interesting that my role between the non-academic subject teacher and the foreign teacher hired by the city government is like a bridge. All in all, I do expect my life to follow the spirits of InOut theory."
"The program has left a lasting mark on me in my way thinking and of teaching. It was a completely new learning experience. All of the methods I was introduced to became essential tools of my own teaching; all participants learned from each other. For me as person I took with me, that intercultural awareness is not consistent. It is a whole living process, because intercultural awareness changes day by day."
