Teaching and Learning for Intercultural Understanding: 20 October

The purpose of the Institute is to engage in personal and collaborative learning to further develop intercultural understanding in ourselves, each other and the children we teach.

Essential Questions

● What is intercultural understanding and why is it imperative?

● How can we nurture and develop intercultural understanding in ourselves,

each other and children?

● How does intercultural understanding promote inclusion, equity and social justice?

● How does intercultural understanding foster character and wellbeing?

● How can the Framework for Developing Intercultural Understanding (Rader, 2016) be integrated into teaching and learning?

Learning Outcomes

Our best hopes for the workshop are that participants will:

● Develop a greater knowledge of intercultural understanding as a disposition, competence and lifelong process.

● Grow in self-awareness as they reflect on and explore their own languages, cultures, identities, beliefs, values, attitudes and behaviours.

● Explore and develop new strategies, activities and resources that nurture and support the development of intercultural understanding.

● Explore ways intercultural understanding promotes inclusion, equity and social justice.

● Examine ways intercultural understanding fosters character and wellbeing

● Share their experiences, observations and knowledge to further the learning and understanding of the group.

● Learn about ways to integrate the Framework for Developing Intercultural Understanding (Rader, 2016) in teaching and learning.

Overarching Concepts

● Developing intercultural understanding is a lifelong process for all of us.

● Teaching and learning for intercultural understanding is most effective if it is intentional, explicit and embedded in all we do.

● The components of the Framework for Developing Intercultural Understanding (Rader, 2016) underpin our work and need to be taught, modelled and practised.

● Developing intercultural understanding promotes inclusion, equity and social justice.

● Developing intercultural understanding fosters character and wellbeing.
