Abstract

The contribute presents a self-reflection tool for formative assessment administered to teachers attending a postgraduate course in “management of schools in multicultural context”. The tool follows the Deardorffs’ model of intercultural competence and aims to highlight the most important components that a teacher or a group of teachers still have to develop in order to strengthen their soft-skills to learn and work in multicultural contexts. Authors want to validate this tool for the Italian context to help teachers’ trainers to understand the needs of in training groups and realizing tailored training sessions. Positive results from the first administration of the tool show that it is easy to respond for the most of participants, allows reflection on multicultural situations and interactions, identified the needs of soft-skills for multicultural context that could be in deep discussed during training sessions. On the contrary negative results show the need to improve the clarity of some items.
