In line with the ongoing internationalization of academia, higher education institutions are steadily increasing their intake of international students and staff. Learning and teaching in a multilingual, multicultural environment poses not only great opportunities but challenges and questions as well.

In this workshop, we will identify potential stumbling blocks in a multilingual, multicultural classroom with the aim to raise awareness not only of the pluridiversity in the classroom, but also of the impact of the local linguacultural environment. Furthermore, we will discuss and experiment with helpful communicative and didactic strategies to enhance learning in such an environment.

On the second day of the workshop, you will have an opportunity to implement what you have devised in the workshop in a classroom simulation and give/receive peer feedback. The simulation can be video-recorded for your future reference (optional). The workshop is held exclusively in English not only because this represents a typical (and continuously spreading) framework condition in international classrooms, but also because it gives you an opportunity to experience what it is like to learn through instruction in a non-native language.

Intended learning outcomes:

  • Participants can reflect on the complex challenges of learning and teaching in a multilingual, multicultural environment as well as on their own role and impact in this context.
  • Participants can evaluate their individual instructional design and make adjustments to the specific conditions and requirements of an international classroom.
  • Participants can implement workshop outcomes in a simulation and give each other constructive feedback.
