Teaching in Multicultural Learning Environments

With the rapid increase in globalisation, cultural diversity and intercultural contact are part of daily life, especially in the university context. The number of international students at German universities is growing every year, enriching the interactions among students and staff and enabling ‘Internationalisation at Home’. On the other hand, it also highlights the need for cultural literacy and intercultural competence, in order to prevent misunderstandings and promote development of positive relationships and dialogue. This seminar therefore focuses on culture and communication, first creating awareness of the participants’ own cultural imprints and resulting communication patterns and then using this as the foundation to reflect on other cultural backgrounds and communication. We will then use the insights to further develop their sensitivity for possible hurdles in order to work on strategies to counteract these. The aim is for the participants to acquire a greater ability and range of approaches to foster appropriate communication in intercultural interaction situations that they regularly encounter, such as the classroom, tutorials, consultation hours etc.
