Teaching in Intercultural Contexts

The steadily increasing number of international students at German universities means new talent and vast potential for the future, but also brings along a number of challenges with it. At the university, the teaching context is one of the most significant areas where these challenges are encountered, when different, deeply ingrained learning traditions and expectations come face-to-face with the German academic system. In this seminar, the participants will therefore first engage with their own cultural backgrounds and values. Then, using these as the starting point, they will take a closer look at different cultural characteristics and value systems and the influence of these systems on ways of thinking and learning. In this way, the participants will become aware of and sensitised to possible points of friction in intercultural encounters in the classroom. Working with university-specific practical examples and the participants' own experiences, they will then address new ways to act, react and interact. They will thus build up their ability to analyse such situations using their newly gained insights and to develop approaches for appropriate solutions.

Key points regarding content:

    • Culture and understanding of culture
    • Perception of self and the other
    • Culture-dependent teaching and learning traditions
