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. 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:
- Intercultural Insights
- Getting Started
- Critical Thinking
- Other Resources
Learning Modules[edit | edit source]
