Teaching in a culturally diverse environment: Developing tools and competences for the classroom and beyond

Summary in German below

18 September 2023, 9:00-18:00
Facilitator: Johann Chalmel, Lecturer at the Chair in Interculturalities, Université de Haute-Alsace (UHA)
Format: in-person
Language: English (Depending on the languages and preferences of the participants, there may also be opportunities to speak German and French.)

Teaching in a culturally diverse environment poses particular challenges, as both students and instructors must navigate different cultural codes and assumptions, ideas about teaching and learning, and potentially different languages. In this workshop, participants will reflect on their own intercultural experiences to identify the competences they need to teach in an intercultural classroom. By working through examples from their own teaching practice, participants will begin to develop a tailored set of tools to create an enabling environment and help them act with more ease in intercultural situations.

Over the course of this workshop, participants will:

  • develop a better understanding of the concept of interculturality.
  • learn how to take advantage of cultural shock to build cultural competence.
  • share experiences and develop tools based on real-life teaching situations.
  • begin building a strategy for their next courses.

This workshop is funded by 4D – 4 Dimensions of Digital and Didactic Development and is intended as the first in a series of supports for instructors teaching in languages other than their native language. Feedback from the workshop will help shape the direction of future supports.

Unterrichten im interkulturellen Kontext:
Kompetenzen- und Methodenworkshop über den Seminarraum hinaus

Das Unterrichten im interkulturellen Kontext bringt besondere Herausforderungen mit sich: Sowohl Lernende als auch Lehrende navigieren nicht nur zwischen verschiedenen Sprachen und kulturellen Hintergründen, sondern können auch mit eigenen (Vor-)Urteilen konfrontiert werden. In diesem Workshop reflektieren Sie über Ihre eigenen interkulturellen Erfahrungen, sodass Sie persönliche Lösungen für mehr Leichtigkeit im interkulturellen Umgang finden.
