Workshop Description

Intercultural pedagogy refers to the range of teaching and curricular approaches that improve students’ abilities to communicate and work across cultural, social, and personal differences. 

This workshop explores intercultural pedagogy and strategies to enhance its use in online classrooms. We will specifically delve into the concept of valuing assets that students bring to classrooms, one of several components of intercultural pedagogy. 

Embracing an asset-based perspective, participants will acquire knowledge that can be useful to centering diversity, equity, and inclusion in their pedagogy and practice the application of intercultural pedagogy strategies in their own online teaching contexts.
