What is focused?

Migration shapes our societies:

Globalization of the economy, poverty, war, and persecution, but also the perspective of international careers or qualifications abroad, make people leave their home country for a period of time or even forever. In each country migrants are part of the society. Schools offer migrants and their children, as well as refugees and members of national minorities, learning opportunities and the chance to participate in society in greatly varying degrees.

Diversity in school requires professionalization of the teachers

in many fields. With focus on heterogeneity due to migration and ethnic minorities.
LeaCoMM is mainly concerned with:

  • language education and use of multilingualism,
  • design of school and lessons with a critical attitude towards racial matters
  • intercultural / international perspectives on lesson contents,
  • diversity management in schools and school administration.
With view to group-related stereotypes, prejudices and racist attitudes

teacher education has the task to design opportunities for learning even in tabooed fields.
