There is no doubt, we are now living in a global village. The boundaries between states have faded, and each day, more and more people travel around the world to study, work, or migrate to another country for a better life.
Because of this, teachers work every day in multicultural classrooms, where the students may come from different countries, speak different languages, and have limited knowledge of their teacher’s as well as their peers’ cultures.
This is when the development of Intercultural Awareness and Intercultural Competency in a classroom becomes crucial. On the one hand, Intercultural Awareness refers to having an understanding of one’s own and other cultures, as well as to being able to appreciate the similarities and differences between them. On the other hand, Intercultural Competency helps members of different societies and cultural backgrounds to communicate successfully and appropriately among them.
This course will offer teachers an insight into the importance of attitudes such as empathy, curiosity, and openness toward other cultures. By reflecting on these concepts, and practicing effective strategies to bring such reflection into action, the participants will acquire a set of practical tools to improve their Intercultural Competency and achieve successful communication in multicultural contexts.
By engaging in a variety of practical activities, participants will also learn to serve as mediators and to familiarize their learners with Intercultural Competency. This will help them create bridges between the different cultures co-existing in their classroom, and establish an inclusive atmosphere, where students feel comfortable, accepted, and at home. By the end of the course, participants will become familiar with very productive techniques, strategies, and games on how to introduce and teach Intercultural Competency in an intercultural classroom.
