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

Babeș-Bolyai University, through the Department of Psychology (project director assoc. prof. Oana Negru-Subțirică), coordinates the Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership PROMIS (2019-2022). In this project, 7 organizations from 6 countries will develop research-based instruments to help students better understand what social inclusion is and how they can enhance 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 course curriculum, fostering social, civic, and intercultural competences in studens;
  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 (Romania, 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).
