ReCULM – Working supportively with refugees (2016-2018)
This 2-year interdisciplinary research and training project aimed to address the refugee crisis’ training needs for cultural mediators. The RECULM project was supported by funding from the EU Erasmus+ Programme. The project explored the experiences of practitioners and experts working in the refugee sector, engaged in challenging intercultural communication context. Using evidenced based learning outcomes, the project developed up-to-date, free modular courses on refugee crisis management in a form of Open Educational Resources (OERs) and a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC).

The MOOC was produced by GRAMNet academics and practitioners at the University of Glasgow.
