Workshop: Cultural Diversity in the Classroom

Is your classroom becoming more culturally diverse with students from different countries? Are you teaching overseas or facilitating classes in an intercultural setting? This presentation will introduce you to the basics of intercultural communication by highlighting cultural differences that affect our students’ learning and classroom dynamics.

The goal is to allow you to reflect on your teaching practice and move towards effective strategies to address cultural diversity.
