Intercultural Perspectives on Teaching and Learning

Remote Global Learning Course

Examine intercultural perspectives on teaching and learning across diverse national borders around the world. Explore the role that class, race, gender, economics, politics, religion, and cultural heritage play in the evolving dynamics in language policy, foreign and bilingual language education, and international education. Program participants critically reflect upon the ramifications of current world events – such as the global pandemic of COVID-19 and the impact of cross-border migration of refugees due to political conflicts – on intercultural education, civic engagement, national development, and globalization.

We will share insights with scholars, teachers, policy-makers, writers, administrators, and program developers in intercultural studies from a sample of countries across the continents, including but are not limited to faculty members at NYU’s global portal sites. Diverse learning experiences consist of asynchronous online instructions, synchronous online lectures, and special guest presentations, real-time discussions, supervised small-group or individual research projects off-line, etc. Collaborative projects with participants from different countries are also being planned.
