Session Abstract

In development studies we learn (and teach) in a very diverse and international setting: the International Intercultural Classroom. By this we generally mean a learning setting with dozens of different nationalities and backgrounds, even though each student enters the classroom with very different expectations and educational experiences. This Round Table will discuss opportunities as well as limitations (and/or challenges) of this Global Intercultural Classroom, also presenting findings from recent research. We explore perspectives from students as well as from teachers.

Facilitators: Freek Schiphorst (ISS) and Kees Biekart (ISS)
