This minor offers an innovative way to influence student teachers’ intercultural and international development and prepare them for teaching culturally diverse student populations. In an international minorgroup with students from different countries, you will explore issues such as teaching your subject from an international perspective, intercultural awareness, educational exchanges and digital media in the classroom. As this minor is offered in English, it will give you the opportunity to work on your English-language skills as well!
Under the effects of globalisation, education in Europe and beyond is constantly changing. Primary and secondary schools have to be prepared to educate their students for a world in which everything seems to be connected. Consequently, educational learning systems and teaching methods need to change to adapt to these developments! At the same time teachers have to teach classrooms with students with culturally diverse backgrounds.Given this, you as student teacher need to be prepared and equipped with the skills and knowledge to be able to adapt to these changes. You need to educate your students to be responsive to the challenges and opportunities of this changing globalised society and economy we live in. You can help your students to be competent in diverse settings and to have respect for different cultures.
