The aim of ACCORD is to develop flexible, accessible, and affordable learning tools, able to support people working in the educational sector to access informal learning pathways for self-development and assessment of their soft skills in intercultural communication and conflict resolution management. In particular the project aims to assist teachers in handling conflict resolution and become aware of intercultural communication in order to constructively manage conflict, create positive learning environments, and develop students’ conflict competence and social skills.
The main target group for the project is in-service and pre-service teachers and educators of primary school and lower secondary school which have had no previous formal training in conflict resolution, mediation, negotiation, intercultural awareness and dealing with diversity.
