Using digital tools to enhance the international learning experience (29.09.2021)
von 14:00 bis 18:00
For lecturers in the VIP (Virtual International Programme) of the JLU
Learning in groups with an international audience hold great opportunities to broaden the learners’ horizons and to appreciate the variety of cultures getting together in one group. Based on the experiences of the first semester of the VIP program we will discover various ways of supporting the needs of international students as well as the possibilities of initiating fruitful exchanges. Thus, we will address didactic aspects of language barriers and possible solutions, methods for fostering exchange and evaluate how to work in heterogeneous groups. Together we will discuss the issues you as teachers have been encountering and interactively try out the different methods and tools that facilitate an engaging online and/or digitally supported setting.
