Workshops on Tools for teaching in an educationally mobile world

International programmes and international students are part of our daily lives at Aarhus University. But how do you teach and plan your teaching when the students come with entirely different cultural and languistic backgrounds Are there any principles that you can follow to make your teaching more international and inclusive?

Focus on feedback

The issue of feedback is getting hot in the educational debate. This fall, feedback was also the subject of two different events at Aarhus BSS - the first one for students, the other one for teachers. Teaching Associate Professor Bente Mosgaard Jørgensen from the Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL), Aarhus BSS, contributed to arranging them.

What’s it like to be an international student in Aarhus?

Internationalisation is on the agenda at both Aarhus University and Aarhus city council. Both have expressed a clear wish to upgrade on internationalisation and secure an increase in international students. But how do the international students feel about living and studying in Aarhus?

”It is my dream for all lecturers to have more possibilities and be better prepared for teaching in the international classroom when IntlUni is finished by next autumn,” says project coordinator Karen M Lauridsen. (Photo: CUL)
”It has been important to us that the different challenges should both be solved and make sense. For instance, one should not just group all students in a mix-up of as many different nationalities as possible. No, it has to make sense in the educational context,” explains Karen M. Lauridsen.
