Facing Diversity: Intercultural Classroom Management - Florence

Rating: 5/53 users

This Erasmus+ course is for teachers working in multicultural classes.
Diversity challenges traditional teaching strategies and asks for innovative solutions.

This introductory course will address issues such as: how is it possible to create a syllabus suitable both for native and for non-native students? How can educators face language and communication difficulties? How can students interact in a productive way regardless their cultural belonging?

Through case discussion, sharing of good practices and engaging activities, participants will explore intercultural educative practices. They will receive prompts to foster communication in their classes and will explore solutions to plan activities aiming at meeting newcomers’ needs without interrupting the regular didactic flow. Teaching strategies with concrete, across-the-board objectives will be presented (role-playing, cooperative learning and many others).

By the end of the course, participants will have gained broader awareness about different learning approaches, intercultural communication, innovative methods, and how to convert diversity from burden to opportunity.

COURSE LEARNING OUTCOMES:

- Ability to choose suitable methods for different classes, contexts and moments during the lesson;
- Teaching strategies with concrete, across-the-board objectives: role-playing, cooperative learning;
- Expertise related to intercultural communication;

Training conducted at a high level in a very nice atmosphere. A large dose of knowledge and skills that I can now apply in practice. An interesting form of classes, a lot of practical examples enabling discussion and drawing conclusions. Creative approach to the subject. The training was conducted and organized in a professional manner.
