“Union of minorities. Educational tools for the European cultural mosaic” is a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) created in the frame of the project “Minorities as opportunity and occasion for chrysalis” supported by Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission (Key Action 2 “Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices - Strategic partnership”).
The course collects original materials created specifically for the project (video lessons, interviews, textual materials, exercises and self-assessment questionnaires) and pre-existing materials (external links to manuals, toolkit , video) to provide youth and social workers, educators, teachers, practitioners of public and private sector, useful contents for building inclusive educational initiatives and projects on the themes of interculturalism and for working in inter- and multicultural contexts.
The MOOC, structured by thematic sections / chapters, includes theoretical references and practical contributions that refer in particular to educational interventions aimed at "cultural minorities" understood in a broad sense, including: migrants for economic / social / political reasons, unaccompanied minors, ethnic groups, LGBTQ communities, communities of the deaf and disabled people, youth gangs, socially isolated communities in urban settings.
