INTERACT: Intercultural Active Citizenship Education

Dr. Manuela Guilherme
Project Coordinator

This project is meant to focus on the intercultural element of citizenship education and it aims to provide guidelines for teacher education in this area.

It intends to follow three main steps:

(1) document analysis;
(2) curriculum analysis;
(3) an empirical study.

This project aims to establish links between official documents, curriculum management and the teachers' experiences, interests and expectations with regard to Citizenship Education, with a special focus on the intercultural dimension, in order to make general and specific recommendations as far as teacher education in this area is concerned.

The purpose of this project is to contribute to the effective implementation of official guidelines on this matter and to the expansion of good practices that have been scattered in the schools.
