Methodological Guidelines for Elaborating the Curriculum of Intercultural Education with a Focus on the Values of Tolerance
Keywords:intercultural education, curriculum, methodological guidelines, values, tolerance
AbstractOur paper proposes a series of methodological guidelines for elaborating the curriculum of intercultural education with a focus on the values of tolerance. The aim is to provide curriculum suggestions for intercultural education as a discipline in adult education undergraduate and graduate study programmes. The present work relies on a thorough literature review on values promoted by intercultural education, the opportunities provided by intercultural education to promote non-discrimination values and attitudes in the context of an increasingly globalised world and labour market, defined primarily by versatility and intercultural / multicultural work settings and teams. Our experimental research aim is to provide evidence that IE can be a decisive factor in building tolerance-related attitudes and methodological guidelines on how IE may be implemented in adult education.
