Inter-Mediterranean Peace And CollaboraTion
IMPACT (Inter-Mediterranean Peace And CollaboraTion) is a consortium of Higher Educational Institutions, organizations, youth associations, and technology companies that are committed to promote inter-cultural dialogue and virtual mobilities through developing soft skills, digital skills, inter-cultural communication skills of Higher Educational students and youth participants of the project in Europe, Israel, and Morocco. The project’s motto is “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I remember, involve me and I learn.”
THE OBJECTIVES OF IMPACT
The project aims to promote virtual intercultural dialogue, activities and programs between different cultural and religious groups within Programme countries and third countries through using online people-to-people interactions using youth-friendly technologies and innovative pedagogies. Through integrating innovative technology & pedagogies that promotes the quality of virtual exchanges, more young people will be able to benefit from intercultural and international experiences.
THE PLANNED ACTIONS
Our work plan includes the design and piloting of the virtual exchanges through:
joint innovative Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) modules
joint virtual activities and events
tool boxes that provide innovative means and approaches for intercultural dialogue and collaboration through innovative digital technology and pedagogy will facilitate the designing of COIL modules and courses as well as joint activities and events
The participating HEIs in this program will develop institutional strategies and policies that will validate COIL courses and virtual mobilities, events and experiences. These strategies and policies can be used as models or templates by other institutions in Europe, third countries and the world. The virtual mobility and COIL courses will be recognized academically and accredited by the different academic educational institutions of the consortium.
