The project is financially supported by the German Academic Exchange
Service (DAAD) and is carried out with the partnership of TU Dortmund
University and Dicle University. The aims of the project are;
to promote the development of global and intercultural competences of
student teachers and teacher educators,
train both groups in pedagogic, scientific approaches and help them to
reflect on global and intercultural competences,
support learners in acquiring these skills.
In order to materialise these aims; jointly developed and taught courses
are simultaneously being run at the two teacher education institutions. Also,
student exchange that includes a group of students from Dicle University
attending an intensive one week course jointly with German students in Dortmund
and vice versa. Staff exchange and capacity building which involves the
enhancement of young researchers’ skills through research method courses are
also important element of the project.
