Active learning is perceived as very important at the University of Groningen (and in other Anglowestern higher education institutions): “Understanding happens through interaction”. This workshop will make lecturers aware of the effect of active learning on their teaching and learning activities and accordingly on the learning process of their (international) students. With a specific focus on how to work with diversity as a resource through constructive alignment and how to guide students without an educational background in active learning.
This workshop can help lecturers to become aware of the necessity of being explicit, their own academic culture and bias.
- To recognize academic cultural differences;
- To use the characteristics and culture of international students as an added value in learning situations;
- To integrate intercultural competence in the teaching process.
