Workshop on 'Bringing Intercultural Competence to the Classroom' set for Tuesday

Issues and ideas for bringing intercultural competence into Purdue classrooms will be the focus of a special session of College Teaching Workshops hosted by the Center for Instructional Excellence at 10:30-11:45 a.m. Tuesday (Dec. 12) in Wilmeth Active Learning Center, Room 3090.

Temi Wright, an ambassador for the Center for Intercultural Learning, will facilitate the session, which is titled "Bringing Intercultural Competence to the Classroom." It is designed for faculty, graduate teaching assistants and staff who are interested in advancing their own awareness of and skills in diversity and intercultural competence and in helping their students do the same.

Participants will define the terms, explore reasons for incorporating such concepts in courses, and develop ideas for adapting classroom environments and pedagogical designs in ways that are sensitive to the multiple perspectives and cultures that are present in Purdue’s classrooms.

The session meets 1.25 hours of instructional development criteria for the Graduate Teaching Certificate program.

There is no pre-registration, but sign-in will be requested for those participating in the certificate program.
