Teaching in the international classroom
Learn to engage students in a culturally diverse class

Teaching in the international classroom

Current facets (Pre-Master)

Are you teaching in one of Erasmus Universities English-taught programmes? And is your class filled with Dutch and international students alike? 

  • Do you feel that there is more to teaching an international classroom than just putting students from different countries together?
  • Would you like to expand your didactic toolkit to engage all students in your culturally diverse classes?
  • Would you like your project groups to collaborate more effectively?
  • Would you want to get (all) your students to interact more in class?
  • Are you curious how to adapt your content and methods to students with a pretty diverse level of English?

The international classroom has often been identified as a potent internationalization tool, allowing both mobile and home students to develop international competences in an authentic context. However, it has also been recognized that lecturers are the key players in actually shaping these classrooms into powerful international learning environments – and that they need a set of skills to do so. 

This hands-on training supports university lecturers in translating insights from research into internationalization in higher education into their own international classroom practice. It offers you just the tools you need to maximize the effect of their international classrooms.
