IncluSMe – Intercultural Learning in Mathematics and Science Education

IncluSMe (2016-2019) is an Erasmus+ project focussing on intercultural learning in mathematics and science initial teacher education. IncluSMe (Intercultural learning in mathematics and science education) offers a constructive contribution for tackling one of Europe’s greatest challenges: education for an increasing number of refugee and immigrant youth, to integrate them into European educational systems and to provide for stable, socially cohesive societies. The project aims to increase the quality of higher education curricula for prospective maths and science teachers by linking maths and science education with intercultural learning – and thereby strengthening students’ social, civic and intercultural competences.

Core to IncluSMe is the design and implementation of open access teaching modules on intercultural learning for prospective maths and science teachers.

By offering international summer schools and multiplier events, IncluSMe will strengthen transnational cooperation between universities in establishing mobility programmes for maths and science students in initial teacher education.

The project brings together 11 teams of higher education institutions for initial teacher education from across Europe comprising experts in maths and science education, in inclusion and diversity, in mobility and intercultural learning, as well as people involved in pilot projects for refugees.
