Intercultural Workshops

The annual Intercultural Workshops are aimed at those Hildesheim students who participate in the international project band 'Translanguaging' and/or are interested in the topics of diversity-sensitive and multilingual teaching. At the TeacherTranslanguagingCamp we regularly have an English-language workshop on Teaching in International Classrooms, so that students from our partner universities can also participate.

Feedback on the Workshop "Teaching in International Classrooms" (December 2021)

  • The workshop supported my view on looking for things we have in common, not for the differences. It makes life so much more fruitful. I also see it as a great aspect of teaching in school, because I would like to enable my pupils to see it that way, too.
  • I found it interesting to see where we "are coming from". Everyone has their own influences but there are also similarities. (Sub Cultures)
  • Even if the cultures are different it doesn't mean that there are no similarities between societies.   
  • It really helped to discuss about this topic by thinking about the own position. Many topics in the university are worked on by a very distanced position, but especially to this topic everybody can relate and maybe should reflect the own position to.
  • It helped me to reflect on the impact of culture in the classroom. It also reinforced the idea of being mindful of the different cultural background of my students and the people around me.
