The Education of Migrant Workers' Children--"The Training of Teachers." Course on the Intercultural Training of Teachers (Lisbon, Portugal, September 21-24, 1981).
Rey von Allmen, Micheline
A course on the intercultural training of teachers, organized by the Portuguese authorities, was a result of a Franco-Portuguese pilot project concerned with the development of intercultural training courses and teaching materials. Purposes of the course were to present the material prepared by the joint Franco-Portuguese team; to test and evaluate it on the basis of the participants' thoughts; and to draw up recommendations concerning the intercultural training of teachers in Europe. Participants were from 14 countries (France, Portugal, Austria, Cyprus, Spain, Denmark, Italy, Norway, Netherlands, Federal Republic of Germany, United Kingdom, Switzerland, Turkey, and Yugoslavia) and 4 governmental and non-governmental organizations. Topics covered in lectures, talks, and discussions in plenary sitting and in working groups were: presentations of the Franco-Portuguese pilot projects; examples of teacher training in Turkey and the Federal Republic of Germany; socio-cultural data relating to the situation of Portuguese migrants in France; mutual images (obtained from educational, tourist, and general publications and from questionnaires given to various categories of pupils); use of real life materials (materials suitable for use in teaching or training, but not made for that purpose); and practical teaching and the intercultural approach. Group reports and recommendations concluded the course. (NQA)
