The Institute for Learning Innovation (ILI) of the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg is a partner of Project ACCORD - Attain Cultural Integration through COnflict Resolution skill Development, financed by the Erasmus+ Programme, KA3 - Initiatives for policy innovation - Social inclusion through education, training and youth – EACEA.

The aim of ACCORD is to develop flexible, accessible, and affordable learning tools, able to support people working in the educational sector to access informal learning pathways for self-development and assessment of their soft skills in intercultural communication and conflict resolution management. In particular the project aims to assist teachers in handling conflict resolution and become aware of intercultural communication in order to constructively manage conflict, create positive learning environments, and develop students’ conflict competence and social skills.

The project consortium consists of 7 partners:

  • Università of Naples Federico II, Italy (lead partner)
  • Smarted srl, Italy
  • University of Barcelona, Spain
  • Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany
  • University of Vienna, Austria
  • Fondazione Mondo Digitale, Italy
  • University of Antwerp, Belgium

The main target group for the project is in-service and pre-service teachers and educators of primary school and lower secondary school which have had no previous formal training in conflict resolution, mediation, negotiation, intercultural awareness and dealing with diversity.

The 36-month project (from December 2016 to December 2019), will implement the following activities:

  • Development of National Surveys and National expert workshops
  • Design of ACCORD pedagogical framework
  • Development of project website
  • Pilot studies
  • ENACT Software Adaptation
  • Develop of ACCORD Integrated platform
  • MOOC design and implementation
  • Final Dissemination Event

As a first step, the current status of integrative education in Europe will be identified and analyzed within ACCORD. The result of this initial research phase is the basis for the methodology of the project. It examines the competencies teachers need and are already applying in relation to:

  • the effective inclusion of disadvantaged pupils, especially those with a background of migration, in teaching activities,
  • the prevention of discriminatory practices in the teaching context,
  • as well as the management of conflicts in the classroom.

For the investigation, the ACCORD team has developed a multicultural personality questionnaire. The questionnaire is used and evaluated in four European countries.

We ask for 20 minutes of your time to complete the questionnaire and help us to get to know the intercultural communication and the teachers' conflict resolution skills.
