Center for Civil Integration and Inter-ethnic Relations conducted a meeting with students at Samtskhe-Javakheti State University. The meeting was conducted in the framework of the project "Development of an International Model for Curricular Reform in Multicultural Education and Cultural Diversity Training" (DOIT) funded by the European Commission TEMPUS program.
CCIIR was happy to provide students and faculty members with the recommendations about how to increase/promote their social involvement, particularly their participation in planning and organizing intercultural events. Basically the activities that were discussed and suggested by CCIIR included film screenings for discussion, invitation of guest speakers, seminars, excursions, support initiative on creating student club etc.
The project aims to enhance the quality of educational programs for promoting multicultural education, human and children’s rights and cultural diversity through a multi-faceted program that will bring about curriculum reform in its partner's Higher Educational Institutions in Israel and in Georgia. DOIT's program includes the design and piloting of courses for BA, MA students and in-service teachers, workshops for faculty, a program of outside of the classroom activities for students aimed to promote positive inter-cultural relations, and a portal that facilitates joint work and dissemination.
