Teachers in higher education – watch out!

Discover 13 open access teaching modules on intercultural learning  to prepare our future teachers for a timely science and mathematics education.

The modules deal with future teachers’ values, attitudes and intercultural competences (modul 1 & 13), with cultural perspectives on mathematics and science (modul 2 to 5, e.g., different approaches to reasoning and different perspectives on current ecological problems) and pedagogical approaches on tackling diversity in classrooms (modul 6 to 12, e.g. relevance of language, assessment and learning outside of school).
