Erasmus+ Funds New EuroClio Project on Inclusive Education

EuroClio has started its new project “Strategies for Inclusion – Making high quality history and citizenship education more inclusive and accessible,” funded by the Erasmus+ Key Actions 2. The project will contribute to making the teaching and learning of history and citizenship at schools more inclusive and accessible for learners with special educational needs and disabilities. It will enhance equity, diversity, and inclusion of educational systems overall, while strengthening the profile of teaching professions and the quality through mobility and cross-border cooperation. The project will last for a total of 36 months, finishing September 2018.

The first project management meeting will take place in the Netherlands on November 27-29, where the project partners will gather for the planning of the project for the next coming period.

A call for special interest groups will be coming soon.

EuroClio will work with Armenian – CIVITAS (Armenia), Agrupamento de Escolas Coimbra Centro (Portugal), Zavod za gluhe in ngalusne Ljubliana (Slovenia), Zakladni skola a Materska skola Deblin okres Brno-venkov, prispevkova organizace (Czech Republic), Norges Teknisk-Naturvitenskapelige Universitet (Norway), and Stichting Hogeschool Van Amsterdam (the Netherlands) to produce tailored educational resources, build the capacity of educators, build more awareness of the importance of inclusive and citizenship education, and create a transferable model on the implementation of strategies for inclusion that can be adapted for use in other subjects as well. While the project addresses all learners, it will concentrate on learners with visual and hearing impairments and learners with behavioural and motivation difficulties in particular.
