Two2Tango: Tandems for Teaching in the glocal classroom
Created and run by Jenny Valcke, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm and coordinated for Università Cattolica by the Centre for Higher Education Internationalisation (CHEI), this course is intended for teachers who wish to develop their teaching skills and their intercultural awareness for teaching the international classroom in English. The glocal classroom is a place where students and teachers navigate diverse languages, cultures and values of teaching and learning.
The aim of the project Two2Tango is to enhance the pedagogical, cultural and linguistic competences of university teachers for teaching in the international classroom. Participants are matched with academic staff from other universities and will work in a tandem with the support of a facilitator. Tandem partners meet every month to discuss the content of the unit they are studying and then submit a short assignment. Tandems agree between themselves the dates and times for their meetings and invite their facilitator.
