Global Teacher Education

    3. GoTEd Week: May 8-11, 2023

    Diversity is an opportunity! Finding common ground, celebrating differences, and learning from each other

    Different religions, different languages, different cultures, different upbringings. At the 3. GoTEd Week, we are looking at how to benefit from being different in a teaching context. In what way can we be different? What are best practice ideas teachers apply in heterogenous classes? How can students be prepared for what they need to deal with later as teachers?

    A diversity of speakers from JMU and partner universities will provide their perspectives based on their research and experiences. We are looking forward to exploring the beauty and chances of diversity at the 3. GotEd Week! Participation is free of charge.
