A Research Visit to Norway
The project action “A Research Visit to Norway” was carried out on 22-24 June 2016. During the trip seven project experts visited four Bergen kindergartens that offer multicultural education programmes. The visit agenda was arranged and coordinated by the Norwegian project partners - Džiuginta Beraldsnes, Alicja Sadovnik and Solveig Karlgraf, all experts from Bergen University College. While visiting the kindergartens, the project team attended educational sessions, had meetings with the kindergartens’ administration, teachers and parents, discussed challenges and specific methods used in multicultural education. The visitors met with Bergen Unversity college academic staff who specialize in pre-school education and teacher training. During the visit the experts from Lithuania shared experience and gained information about the practice and achievements of multicultural education in Norway, which will be used in the further steps of the project: producing A Best Practice Guide in pre-school and pre-primary multicultural education for Lithuanian kindergartens.
The project is being implemented with the support of the EEA grants. Application number EEE-LT08- ŠMM-01-K- 02-006. More information can be found here: http://vikc.lt/en/projects-58/international-projects--13216
