In classrooms across Denmark, students and teachers are facing the same challenges: schools and classrooms have over the years become more diverse – in terms of religion, ethnicity, and language. It places crucial demands on both students and us as teachers when we have to recognize and respond to each other’s difference.
This seminar is for all teachers and student teachers who, together with their colleagues, wish to seek knowledge and engage with the challenges of the multicultural and diverse classroom.
In a one-day seminar on November 25, 2020 we will delve into questions like: How do you as a teacher facilitate the demands of a diverse classroom? What challenges and dilemmas can occur? Are there, for example, specific topics that can lead to conflict? Which preconceived understandings and beliefs do you bring into the classroom, and do they influence your teaching?
Together with experts we will examine our own points-of-view in the encounter with the students and ask what it means – and what the difference is – wether the student is part of a diverse group or a minority. How do our language as teachers mediate our encounter with the students? And what consequences do names like ‘bilinguals’ (Danish: ‘to-sprogede’) and ‘scarf girls’ (Danish: ‘tørklædepiger’) have for the classroom environment?
