Project Week

Explore, engage and understand diversity

Our OCULAR-Project:
Our Cultures: Understand. Live. Act. Respect.

We see culture not as country, continent or religion-related behaviors, but rather as the perceptions, the patterns of thought and the actions of the individual.

In this sense, we consider individuals in the OCULAR project and support the understanding and acceptance of one’s own personality and culture. By looking at the personalities and cultures within the group, the understanding and the recognition of uniqueness are encouraged. Current topics including globalization, flight and international teams are being considered.

During the process, we focus on the social and inter-active interactions of the group. In deepening and discussing, we are guided by the common learning process and especially the diversity and the handling of this diversity.

On the basis of the transcultural approach, we start with a look at the personality and extend it to the global society.

Thus, global learning and the diversity approach is handled in a different way, imparting indispensable competences to our globalized world, and strengthening both the group and the individual himself.

The framework of the OCULAR project week

Within the OCULAR project week, the students will discuss the topic of culture, intercultural learning and diversity.

Students develop a different perspective on cultures and individuals in their environment. During the course of the week, you will discuss your own culture and its components. Subsequently, the personal culture is developed and prejudices and stereotypes of the prevailing cultures in the classroom are discussed. As a result, the pupils will be able to understand and engage other cultures within the classroom as well as to learn from them, thus strengthening their own personality.

The highlight of the week is the definition or design of the current class culture with all its aspects, from values ​​to behavior to traditions. This result is creatively prepared by the students and presented in the framework of a so-called Global Village on Fridays afternoon for classmates and families. The Global Village serves as a market place for cultures, where individual cultures are presented by the students at “market stalls” through flipcharts, pictures, texts, talks, robes, dances, songs, etc.

The OCULAR project promotes the interaction and willingness to learn among the students and the prevailing respect and tolerance of the class system.

We offer the OCULAR project to schools as well as companies in a multi-day seminar form.

The methodology of OCULAR

The focus of the OCULAR project is the interaction of the participants and the joint learning. To this end, we offer an interactive foundation, in which the needs of the participants are taken into account and the process is flexibly adapted to the target with a view to the target.

In order to maximize the learning content, theories are combined with experiences from everyday situations, the participants’ experiences are worked on and processed.

Intercultural learning and the diversity approach are applied to the group and accompanied by the speakers.

The training is varied and inspiring.
