EMIC Toolkit

The EMIC Toolkit is an Open Education Resource that is scalable, customisable and useful for all European higher education programmes to support students developing Intercultural Competence.

The EMIC Learning Programme is composed of face-to-face and online activities that are detailed in the EMIC Toolkit. By following the proposed activities you can implement the EMIC Learning Programme with your students or colleagues in your Higher Education Institution. Feel free to adapt the toolkit !

If you want to use Moodle for the online activities, you can download the already customised Moodle platform here and adapt it to your needs.
