In this seminar, future teachers from Göttingen meet students of a partner university in the online classroom. They exchange ideas and experiences through interactive methods and guided discussions on the topic of intercultural competence at school. Further, they can gather virtual intercultural experiences. In between the video conferences, they exchange information via an online platform and reflect on their experiences in an online portfolio.
Students are able to reflect upon their own cultural bias in the setting of school and education. Through groupwork in international teams they learn about the benefits and difficulties in diverse teams and can later apply this at school.
The online phase starts in October 2022. Students will get to know each other, form teams and start groupwork. From November 24th until 29th 2022 the students will meet in Göttingen for the finalization of the group work, presentations and visits to local schools to learn about different approaches to education.
