Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership Project:

“Promoting social inclusion skills in a post-truth world: A gamified online platform and curriculum (PROMIS)”

In November 2019 the Self and Identity Development Lab attended the first transnational meeting of the PROMIS project in Warsaw, Poland. The project is coordinated by Babes-Bolyai University (project director associate professor Oana Negru-Subtirica). Seven partner organizations from 6 countries, took the first steps towards elaborating research-based instruments that will help students better understand what social inclusion is and how they can develop their competences when interacting with marginalized groups.

Starting from the need to guide youth in the “post-truth” world they live in, one in which they increasingly rely on information from unverified and often undocumented sources, the partnership will develop:

  1. The BUILD curriculum, addressing social inclusion skills and competences in students;
  2. A gamification manual of the BUILD curriculum;
  3. A gamified online e-learning platform, as a hub for the project curriculum and online course;
  4. A modular online course, eBUILD integrated in the e-learning platform.

The project partners are: Babes-Bolyai University (coordinator), University of Bologna (Italy), University of Bordeaux (France), Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński University in Warsaw (Poland), Kaunas University of Technology (Lithuania), Utrecht University (Netherlands), and eLearning & Software (Romania).
