In this session we will roll up our sleeves and dig in! We will discuss current scholarship that highlights pedagogies (e.g., intercultural pedagogy, culturally sustaining, playful pedagogy) aimed at valuing and amplifying diverse voices and experiences in order to realize the true potential of our diverse classes. Participants will be provided with a selection of readings to read ahead of the session. Please come ready to discuss and consider ways you might put some of this to into practice.
This webinar is co-facilitated in partnership between Internationalizing the Curriculum and Campus (ICC) and the Minnesota English Language Program (MELP).
This webinar falls under the following themes:
Theoretical Foundations for Teaching in Globally Diverse Classes
Inclusive Learning Communities: Integration, inclusion, and community building in the Classroom
