Facilitating Intercultural Learning in Globally Diverse Classes Workshop

These workshops are part of the "Teaching in Globally Diverse Classes" series for instructional faculty and staff, aimed at promoting student engagement in globally diverse classes.

How do we as teachers facilitate intercultural learning that centers on the diverse perspectives that students bring to our classrooms? Join us for an interactive online workshop where you will have the opportunity to expand and deepen your teaching strategies to engage the global diversity in your classes.

Faculty and instructors from all disciplines face increasing demands to help students develop the intercultural skills necessary to thrive in today’s world. During this workshop, you will learn from leaders in the field of intercultural education and practice strategies to facilitate interactions among students in your globally diverse classrooms.

The workshop is intended for faculty and instructors who seek to create inclusive learning environments that successfully engage all students through intentional course design and teaching practices.

In this interactive workshop, you will:

  • Learn and practice intercultural facilitation techniques.
  • Explore, share, and practice activities that broaden student engagement, integration, and interaction.
