After publishing their handbook, interactive toolkit and inter-cultural sensitivity survey, EDU:PACT is ready for their final conference on:
2nd of March 2021, 09:30 - 12:00 (CET)
Research indicates that many physical education teachers and coaches have not received formal training on working with diverse groups, and lack professional competences in the area of intercultural education.
So what are the current challenges for PE teachers and coaches when they are teaching culturally, ethnically and linguistically heterogeneous classes of pupils or athletes?
This question will be answered by the leading experts on the field in an interactive online conference, that will also provide an insight into the results and tools developed in the #Erasmus+ project EDU:PACT!

Intercultural challenges and opportunities in the EU arising from increased migration and mobility affect physical education teachers and trainers in particular, who often are insufficiently prepared for intercultural education through sport.
The EDU:PACT project aims to improve the quality of pre-service and in-service education, to prepare physical education teachers and coaches for inclusive intercultural education.
EDU:PACT recently released the Module Handbook after almost three years of work, combining the expertise of universities and organisations working in the fields of physical education, coaching and intercultural education.
Now the project shares their next important step, new EDU:PACT Interactive Toolkit and website.
While the EDU:PACT Handbook presents the fundamental thematic and theoretical building blocks for successful intercultural education in sport, the EDU:PACT Interactive Toolkit provides more than that. It is also divided into four units, and contains additional material like review quizzes, videos, infographics and surveys. The extras are meant to help the participants adapt the content to different groups and local needs. However, the projects notes that work is still in progress and they will keep updating information throughout the project runtime.
EDU:PACT also announced Intercultural Sensitivity Survey, which is supposed to give the participants an idea about your overall intercultural sensitivity, and support your self-understanding within the context of the EDU:PACT Toolkit.
