|When:||Tu 31-05-2022 12:00 - 13:00|
How does cultural diversity impact your STEM classroom? What, as a teacher, can you do to support your learners?
In this session the relevance of the intercultural dimension to you as a teacher will be discussed. We will address a (small) number of specific scenarios, elaborating on the underlying cultural dimensions and exploring what a teacher can do. The session concludes with a panel discussion amongst four experienced teachers (representing various study programmes), where they discuss their own practical experiences with a multinational classroom and the difference between competence and incompetence.
Presenters: Hanneke Boode, Michaela Carriere and teachers from various UG STEM programmes.
