Take part in this challenge and develop solutions to a real-world problem of your choice within two categories – Climate Change and Sustainability or Societal Impact and Supporting Community. Any post-secondary student in Canada can join – they only encourage that 50% of your team identifies with the 2SLGBTQ+ community.

What's Happening at Queen's

Upcoming Workshops from the
Centre for Teaching and Learning

Promoting Intercultural Engagement and Collaborations in the Classroom

Thursday, March 17, 2022; 10:30am– 12:00pm

Yunyi Chen, Centre for Teaching and Learning

Intercultural engagement has become a prominent challenge in teaching and learning due to the increasing numbers of internationally educated students coming to Queen’s. On the contrary to the assumption that students from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds interact automatically in the classroom, educators need to intentionally plan and guide intercultural interactions to help students collaborate effectively. In this 90-minute interactive workshop, participants will work together to explore practical strategies, tools, and teaching tips that help promote intercultural engagement in their own practices.

Please Note:

Participants will work in small groups for most of the workshop. Therefore, full commitment to the workshop is critical for the success of each participant and is highly encouraged.

Due to the interactive nature of this workshop, a minimum number of 18 participants is required for this workshop to take place.
