A colleague from a partner university has contacted us with a useful report we’d like to share.
Dr Rhonda Sofer is the coordinator of a TEMPUS IV project that is reaching its final stages. She has written about her experiences of developing and coordinating the DOIT project, including the challenges faced, tips for success and a checklist of good practice.

If you’re thinking of leading or being part of a large, multinational project, this will give some useful insights and guidance.
About the DOIT Project
The DOIT project’s full title is “Development of an International Model for Curriculum Reform in Multicultural Education and Cultural Diversity Training”. It runs from October 15 2012 to August 15 2015.
DOITʼs partnership includes 16 HEIs, four NGOs and six student unions located in seven countries: Israel, Georgia, Austria, Estonia, Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.
The aims of the project are to develop HE curriculum programmes in Israel and Georgia to promote multicultural education, diversity training competencies and childrenʼs rights.
