Nordplus project “Study quality in terms of multiculturalism in the Baltic countries”

The project involves 10 partners from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania: 6 universities of applied sciences, 1 university, 1 consortium of universities, 1 training center with primary, secondary, adult, and early childhood education programs and 1 integration/ migration foundation. The Baltic network work together to examine how internationalization and immigration influence the study quality in educational institutions, and to suggest suitable activities to ensure study quality under the circumstances of internationalization.

The internationalization of education and immigration on the other hand has risen a question: if and how have these two factors influenced the notion of study quality. National Association for Multicultural Education (NAME) recommends, that the goals of high-quality multicultural education include creating a safe, accepting and successful learning environment for all, increasing awareness of global issues, strengthening cultural consciousness and intercultural awareness, preventing prejudice and discrimination.

Due to the economic and social circumstances all the educational institutions in our region are influenced by the multiculturalism and should assure and improve the study quality from this point of view.

During the project period partners from different educational levels share their experiences through seminars by bringing synergy to the project and its approach for better study quality. The outcome of the project is introduced in the conference: a model that helps to describe and improve study quality in multicultural classroom. Project conference will take place in Tallinn, Estonia in October 2018.

Project duration: September 2017 - December 2018
