  Beschreibung   Termine   Zurück  
The course focuses on cultural & intercultural considerations when teaching with digital technologies in higher education, whether in face-to-face, blended or online mode. Bookended by a general introductory & concluding week, four week-long key themes will be explored, each led by a different international partner university. Each week, participants will asynchronously read/view collated resources & reflection questions, before attending a synchronous online session to engage in activities & discussions with international colleagues, sharing insights, practices & concerns & considering future practice.
Participants will be able to
  • identify cultural and intercultural considerations relevant to teaching with digital technologies.
  • Discuss challenges and opportunities of navigating and leveraging digital technologies in intercultural settings.
  • Reflect on digital teaching practices to identify good practices and areas for improvement for cultural and intercultural considerations.
