In the past we presented workshops focussed on Intercultural Competence – e.g. during the ‘Not just a Girlsday’, organized by Brainport Eindhoven, ‘Eet Culturen’ during the WON Project at Knippenberg College in Helmond, or assisted in designing a complete new international program at Heerbeck College, Best.
Not just a Girlsday’, organized by Brainport Eindhoven
In the Intercultural Competence workshop, we worked with teenagers aged 13-14 years to introduce to them what cultural differences mean and how they will interact with people from other countries.
‘Eet Culturen’ – WON Project, Knippenberg College in Helmond
In the WON-project, we invited internationals from Germany and different Spanish-speaking countries to talk and be interviewed about their eating habits, typical food from their country, and the origins of some typical recipes. Its quite amazing on realizing how internationally influenced our recipes are!
“Expat in Nederland” Heerbeeck College Best
Here we worked with teenagers aged 15-16 years old. Opening their mind, creating understanding and actually experiencing what it means international in a foreign country was the focus of this project.
“Future Global Citizens”
Currently we are exploring with a daycare opportunities how it will be possible to implement an early intercultural education and support children to be raised multilingually.
Multilingual Classroom Workshop
The workshop “Multilingual Classroom” is designed for teachers who find themselves in the situation of teaching students from diverse cultural backgrounds with different levels of communication skills. When navigating a multilingual classroom, it is especially important to put a high emphasis on aspects of language-in-use in order to raise metalinguistic awareness. This workshop aims to help current and future teachers become aware of the fact that for effective communication students’ diverse cultural backgrounds and language skills do not need to be an obstacle, but can also be an advantage in everyday communication. Participants will be able to see their classroom from more than a monolingual perspective and will thereby be able to better guide their students’ communication in the classroom community.
Teaching students from different cultural and linguistic backgrounds is a challenge that many teachers face every day. While it is often seen as an obstacle, a diverse group of students is first and foremost an advantage for both the students and teachers. This workshop will help teachers to
- Use their multilingual classroom for their own educational purposes,
- Raise their metalinguistic awareness,
- and look at their challenges from new perspectives to turn them into fun experiences for themselves and their students.
Drawing on theories in educational linguistics, the workshop will provide tools and strategies to guide students through everyday classroom situations and help them become better communicators in all life situations.
