Teaching in a multicultural classroom has become the norm for almost all teachers around the globe.
Monocultural classrooms are rare nowadays and 21st-century educators face the challenge of creating a safe learning and teaching environment by supporting and promoting diversity and inclusion.
Because intercultural communication sometimes encounters barriers, causes conflict, and might turn into an issue for learners, this course emphasizes the importance of raising learners’ cultural awareness to foster diversity and inclusion.
Participants’ engagement in interactive work will prepare them to teach in a multicultural classroom where diversity may sometimes not be welcomed.
They will explore practical exercises and case studies on intercultural encounters and cross-cultural communication to become familiar with the right techniques for encouraging cross-cultural communication and avoiding prejudice and stereotypes among learners of different cultural backgrounds.
In addition, the course will explore the concept of Cultural Shock and its stages. Participants will learn to identify the stages of cultural shock and to offer a solution on how to overcome it. They will also become acquainted with ICT apps that can be used in the classroom to encourage learners to interact among them and raise cultural awareness through interaction.
By the end of the course, participants will have gained confidence in the ways how to foster and encourage diversity and inclusion in the classroom. They will leave the course with a set of practical activities they can implement in their classroom to help their learners understand the importance of diversity and inclusion and raise awareness among them.
