Multicultural Classrooms: Inclusive Learning and Teaching in Classrooms

Contact Number



The rapid change in the world affects not only the economy but also education systems. Due to exchange programs such as Erasmus and Mevlana, the number of foreign students in higher education is increasing day by day. In addition, government scholarships, online education courses offered by universities, and ultimately the increase in the number of refugees and asylum seekers are other factors that increase the number of foreign students from different religions, languages, cultures and ethnicities. In order to cope with this situation and to provide an effective, high quality, inclusive and multicultural education, the main actors in universities are the “lecturers”. In this context, the project aims to develop the skills and competencies of academic staff in order to work in a multicultural and multilingual environment. In order to achieve this aim, within the scope of the project:
1) An innovative in-service training course curriculum and methodology for HEI teaching staff on the management of multicultural classrooms will be developed,
2) Innovative teaching materials will be prepared to improve the multicultural dimension of the teaching process,
3) With the short-term staff training to be carried out, the instructors will be encouraged to develop their skills for the management of multicultural classrooms.
