Intangible Culture, Cooperation and Intercultural Dialogue among University Students
Goncalves, Susana
Intercultural Education, v22 n1 p83-95 2011
This paper focuses on intercultural competence and dialogue across cultural borders between university students from different Portuguese-speaking countries. Various principles and strategies for intercultural education are summarised, and the project "cultures@esec", based on such principles and strategies, is described. The project was focused on cultural heritage. The identities of African students and the intangible culture were also explored. Part of the project involved frequent contacts between domestic and international students, cooperation under equal-status conditions, joint decision-making and active learning. Results show that sharing knowledge and ideas, and working under pleasant learning conditions, can help reduce cultural barriers and prejudice and contributes to intercultural sensitivity and competence. (Contains 2 notes and 2 tables.)
