This two-day course is an introduction to the main issues surrounding teaching and learning at an international university. Based on literature reviews, discussions and own reflections it will enable participants to reflect upon their current teaching practices, while gaining a better understanding and appreciation of their students, their backgrounds and needs. Through this course, participants will be able to integrate elements of international / intercultural education within their teaching practices.
Participants will be asked to prepare material (readings and videos) before the start of the two-day course. The course will be participatory and interactive, with individual/group reflection and discussion exercises to take thinking about the international classroom further.
Slides and teaching/learning materials will be made available to participants on its completion.
Continuous assessment (participation in discussion sessions, responses to class and online tasks) + final task based on micro-teaching practice. Attendance is compulsory. Participants will be evaluated as 'apto' or 'no apto'.
