Teaching in Diverse Environments: Planning for Inclusion and Internationalization

Course Description: 

Internationalization and growing accessibility of higher education effectively turn universities into more and more diverse learning environments. Whether you teach in your home country or abroad, it is likely that you will face a diverse or even a global classroom. Diversity comes in many forms from cultural, social or disciplinary background to differences in previous experiences and learning styles. As exciting as it is, diversity may create challenges for the learning process and thus requires specific skills in course planning, teaching and assessment. This four-session seminar is designed to assist doctoral students in adapting their teaching strategies to the needs of diverse classrooms. By the end of this course students will be able to

  • understand how internationalization changes teaching and learning practices in HE
  • develop skills for teaching in diverse environments at home and abroad;
  • design inclusive and safe learning spaces for teaching sensitive or controversial topics;
  • deal with teaching-related dilemmas through reflective practice.

This course is especially relevant for doctoral students who plan to apply for the CEU Global Teaching Fellowship. It is offered as an independent seminar, but it can also be completed as part of the CTL Certificate Program.
