Intercultural Learning & Teaching

This project aims to provide a range of professional development resources to support teachers of culturally diverse students. These teachers include those in universities, vocational institutions, community-based agencies, schools or clinical settings.

Besides issues of English language and adjustment, the needs of international students are essentially similar to other students.[1] This means that the same strategies that are helpful for international students are most likely to assist most other students too, so a double benefit follows. However, the extent to which international students are affected by these challenges is often much greater. This resource contains two main parts: 1. Tips & Tools, and 2. Learning Modules

Tips & Tools[edit | edit source]

This area is designed for teachers who may, for example, be interested in selecting a few quick ideas or techniques to expand their teaching repertoire. These are organised under the following topics:

  1. Intercultural Insights
  2. Getting Started
  3. Communication
  4. Participation
  5. Critical Thinking
  6. Other Resources
