On Friday 9th October 2020, the GCMC toolkit project had its official start with a digital kick- off meeting. The team, namely, University of Graz (P1), Newcastle University (P2), Fryske Akademy (P3), Bologna University (P4), and Neosmart Digital (P5), discussed the general outline of the project and quality assurance, communication and dissemination strategies as well as future strategies and steps.
The team has started working on the first output by collecting examples of good practice from teachers of various subjects who implement global citizenship (GC) and multilingual approaches in their practices. The gathered materials will be used to contribute to the creation of the ‘Framework of competences and self-reflective tool for teacher competences’ which will appear online on the project website by the end of IO1 (August 2021), and form the basis for the online course which will be developed in IO2. Teachers using this framework will be able to reflect on their GCE and plurilingual teaching competences and observe their progress during the course and beyond.
