Bartlett Learning Lunches

What is interculturalism?

Interculturalism in education is recognising the culturally diverse nature of our students, with the aim of developing a dialogue between these cultures that allows inclusivity in teaching, learning and the enhancement of the student experience. Interculturalism goes beyond student nationalities and encompasses gender, age and academic and financial backgrounds.

This year we have seen a significant change in the cultural diversity of the student body at The Bartlett. In our next Learning Lunch session, we address interculturalism in education and how we can explore the issues surrounding this topic in teaching and learning to develop practices that enable us to make sure that students are getting the most out of their time here.

The Bartlett Learning Lunch will allow staff to discuss their experience of interculturalism (or lack thereof) in courses through an interactive workshop session run by Dr Caroline Selai from the UCL Institute of Neurology. Dr Selai is undertaking a study at UCL through the Teaching Innovations Grant on interculturalism in teaching and learning.

Dr Selai would like to use this session to share her preliminary results with The Bartlett staff, as well as gather more data relating to her pan-UCL study on interculturalism. As such, the session will be recorded and permission to use this recording in her research will be sought from attendees.

To register to attend the session, visit The Bartlett Learning Lunch Eventbrite page.

Lunch will be provided.
