OCULAR Seminar

Discover, meet and understand diversity

In this sense, we look at the individuals in the OCULAR project and support the understanding and acceptance of their own personality and culture. A look at the personalities and cultures of the group promotes that understanding and recognition of uniqueness. Globalization, flight and internationally active teams are considered as current topics.

During the process, we focus on the social and end-to-end interactions of the group. In deepening and discussing, we orient ourselves to the common learning process and especially consider the diversity and the handling of this diversity.

Based on the transcultural approach, we begin with a look at the personality and expand it to the point of global society.

Thus, Global Learning and the Diversity Approach are handled differently, imparting essential skills to our globalized world, and empowering both the group and the individual.

The framework of the OCULAR seminar

During the OCULAR project week, the students engage with the topic of culture, intercultural learning and diversity.

Students develop a different perspective on cultures and the individuals in their environments. They will discuss their own culture and its components throughout the week. Afterwards personal culture will be developed and prejudices and stereotypes of the prevailing cultures in the classroom will be discussed. Afterwards, the students will learn how to better understand and learn from other cultures within the classroom, thus strengthening their own personality.

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

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

We offer the OCULAR project both schools and companies in multi-day and multi-level seminar form.
