Supporting Diversity: Intercultural Classroom Management 

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

This course is for teachers working in multicultural classes. Diversity challenges traditional teaching strategies and asks for innovative solutions

These courses can also be funded through the Erasmus+ program. For more information, please contact your National Agency.

Course overview

In the time of globalisation, cultures, and identities are blending constantly in the classroom. Teachers are faced with classrooms full of students from different backgrounds and needs. In order to allow them to find their place in the classroom and fight discrimination and prejudice, teachers 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. With creative workshops, we will help teachers to build resilient classrooms that foster respect and give students not only a place to learn but a place to strive. 

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

With the aim to involve active participation and achieve the best learning experience, the course methodology is based on dynamic, innovative and creative methods of experiential learning.
It consists of:

Theoretical work If you do not know what you are talking about, you will not be able to apply it. Nowadays, more and more emphasis is put on practical learning, yet theory is a necessity. You have to know the background of a subject to be able to pinpoint its challenges.

Practical work Through practical workshops and interactive tasks you will gain personal experience that will help you understand and implement ideas in your own work.

Coaching Each participant in the course will get the opportunity to receive direct feedback from our coaches. These individual consultations will result in being able to better position your skills in your respected organisation.

Each program starts on Monday morning and finishes on Friday evening with Sathurday being optional for enjoing cultural activities. Throughout the course, besides training, we will promote professional networking through a variety of social and cultural activities.
