Track 7. Formal and informal learning experiences in multicultural scopes


The development of intercultural and multicultural competences and skills on lifelong learning processes has yet to be achieved, this means that main changes of paradigm still need to take place. Particularly in the field of education, it is necessary to move from traditional canons to open processes of creative interaction and build bridges by developing intercultural skills and competencies through educational and media programmes.

This track is devoted to identify, share and valorise best practices and experiences (including technological and methodological issues) that focused on the development of intercultural skills and competencies in education, including both formal and informal approaches.


The main topics regarding this track are related but not limited to the following ones:

  • Multicultural/intercultural educational case studies, best practices and experiences
  • Informal learning competences discovering and recognition
  • Technological ecosystem for enhancing multiculturality
  • Multicultural/intercultural educational language patterns
  • Open linked data and multicultural/intercultural resources
