Cultural Diversity in Your Classroom - Rerun
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS COURSE IS A REPETITION! PLEASE ENROLL FOR THE COURSE BUT BE AWARE THAT IT WILL OPEN ON 20TH FEBRUARY 2017 .
The course offers teachers an opportunity to access useful resources and exchange with peers on the challenging topic of cultural diversity in classrooms. The course is part of a 3-part series of courses exploring the topic of cultural diversity, the situation of newly arrived migrants in general and how to integrate newly arrived migrant students in schools and classrooms.
In this first course of the series, participants will have the opportunity to share their experiences of working with a culturally diverse student body, to discuss different scenarios of the positive use of cultural diversity as a learning context, to analyse teaching and other resources under the prism of effective intercultural communication, and last but not least to develop classroom activities that will potentially recognise and strengthen the class community as a culturally diverse environment.
The course is relevant to any teacher working in a culturally diverse environment or interested in developing students’ cultural awareness and expression.
The course lasts 3 weeks covering two modules. Module 1 looks at how to develop intercultural competences, and Module 2 explores how to recognize and value cultural diversity for learning in the classroom.
Upon completion of the course, participants are awarded a digital certificate and digital badges. If all three courses as part of the series are completed, a special certificate and recognition is awarded on top of the individual course certificates. The other courses in the course series are:
- Raising Awareness about the Situation of Newly Arrived Migrants - launch date 27th March 2017
- Newly Arrived Migrant Students in Schools & Classrooms - launch date 1st May 2017
The course is entirely free and is organised as a MOOC-type course, allowing anyone to join.
