International mindedness



“Our education cannot be complete until we have had conversations with every continent and every civilization.”
[ Theodore Zeldin ]

The aim of this teacher INSET is to explore a concept of international mindedness that goes beyond the “food, festivals and flags” approach, and to look at some concrete strategies for developing a genuinely international ethos in schools.



Topics covered

  • What is International Mindedness?
  • The Role of Critical Thinking
  • Culture & Identity
  • Generalizations & Stereotypes
  • Values, Tolerance & Respect
  • Intercultural Literacy
  • Teaching With the World in Mind
  • Towards a Whole School Policy

The workshop is designed for Middle Years and IBDP teachers and it can be run as a one day or two day INSET.
