International teaching is gaining momentum on a global scale in higher education. Given the increasing presence of a multicultural international community in universities around the world, global and local interconnections among teachers are significant. Although international teaching brings substantial advantages, it also entails new challenges in didactic processes, approaches, concepts, and interactions as well as in the design of a curriculum that addresses different global perspectives and methodologies.

Considering that the umbrella term of international teaching varies depending on the geographical location, the institution, the disciplinary field, and teachers’ views, the Goethe University Frankfurt, Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences, and the Justus-Liebig-University Gießen (Project NIDIT) want to offer you a digital space to discuss and exchange ideas on topics related to international teaching. Accordingly, in the framework of a cooperation between the three aforementioned universities, we are pleased to invite you to the online workshop: “International Teaching – First Steps” on March 30th, 2023, from 2 to 6 pm. This workshop seeks to provide an online venue for sharing ideas about international teaching in complex and evolving multicultural and digital environments.

To achieve the aforementioned objectives, the workshop addresses the following topics:

  • Important considerations when designing international teaching sessions (e.g., Constructive Alignment, basic principles and concepts of international and digital teaching).
  • Good practice examples of international teaching
  • Team teaching: Characteristics and challenges
  • Checklist for planning and organizing international teaching


The workshop itself is a bridge between exchange and discussion with practical applications. Consequently, participants are welcome to share insights in order to develop their own concepts and approaches through dialogues and reflections on practice with others. This will be done in different individual and group working phases and break out rooms.

learning objectives

As we are aware that international teaching is no longer perceived as a goal per se, but rather as an important tool, the aim of this workshop is threefold:

  • it seeks to stimulate and broaden the discussion for international cooperative and digital teaching by engaging participants in a critical dialogue to explore diverse perspectives, concerning approaches, methodologies, and/or concepts.
  • it aims to provide a stage for exchange and discussion on current topics, experiences, and challenges on international teaching in local and global contexts.

  • it addresses meaningful information regarding the systematic design and planning of international collaborative teaching formats that permit to build academic relationships across socio-cultural and geographical boundaries.
