Supporting Diversity with Intercultural Education in the Classroom

Table of Contents

Description

In the time of globalization, cultures and identities constantly blend in the classroom. Teachers face classrooms full of students from different backgrounds and needs. In order to fight discrimination and prejudice, they are required to have more and more skills that standard education is not offering.

This course will give you tools and resources on how to successfully navigate an intercultural classroom.

The course will give teachers, as well as other professionals working with people of different backgrounds, a set of practical exercises and a legal framework that they can use in their classroom to create a more inclusive and diverse classroom.

With creative workshops, participants will build resilient classrooms that foster respect and give students not only a place to learn but also a place to thrive.
