Abstract:

1
This workshop activity allows students to understand how to enhance intercultural engagement and understanding in their community. Whether students are studying abroad, in a new location within their own country, or even in their own neighborhood, they may not have fully explored their new environment and the opportunity it creates to meet new people. Students will be encouraged to go beyond dominant and simplified representations of the place they live in, and to see the host environment through the eyes of others (both mobile students and more permanent residents). She will present the study abroad project “Intercultural Educational Resources for Erasmus Students and their Teachers” (IEREST), and the resources generated from the project (of which “Intercultural geography” is one available to teachers and students).
