Dear Friends and Supporters of the Sir Peter Ustinov Institute,
the integration of immigrants and refugees poses one of the greatest challenges for the future of Europe.
By establishing a new project entitled “Diversity in Early Childhood Education. Learning Openness and Tolerance“, the Sir Peter Ustinov Institute aims to make a valuable contribution to successfully integrating migrant children into Austrian and European society.
By means of a teaching aid, our objective is to support early childhood educators in dealing with prejudice and to foster migrant childrens‘ personal and linguistic skills.
The project is advancing rapidly:
In the course of the first part of the project, renowned experts reported on diversity-related topics in the discipline of Early Childhood Education within the framework of the so-called FH Campus Lectures.
Based on these lectures, the second part of the project – the publisher’s edition of the teaching aid – originated.
Further parts of the multi-level teaching aid project are already in progress. You can keep track of the advancements on our website under the menu item “Current Issues“!
