Responsibilities of Teachers in a Multicultural Environment

This module focuses on teachers’ awareness on the value of intercultural competences as a transformative tool, able to increase similar skills in their students, thus representing a significant factor in the improvement of their future professional qualifications and active citizenship within a multicultural European society.
This module also highlights the main responsibilities of teachers in a multicultural environment (by deconstructing prejudices, promoting diversity, improving active listening, etc.).
Moreover, the module helps to increase intercultural competences, namely, by presenting possible evaluation tools for teachers in order to assess their current intercultural competences.
The module will help teachers to acknowledge their responsibilities as agents of a more inclusive education by proposing the following measures:
  1. Adopt measures related with the ethnographic composition of their classes;
  2. Promote positive interactions among students in order to reduce stereotypes, prejudice and discrimination, and to promote diversity among students;
  3. Promote cooperative learning and create new opportunities for learning;
  4. Encourage students’ critical analysis during class discussions.
  5. Develop professional skills faced on challenges in a multicultural classroom.
