Developing intercultural teaching competence.
MetadataShow full item record
Intercultural teaching competence represents a critical dimension of effective teaching in today’s diverse educational settings. As they model and encourage perspective-taking, nonjudgmental approaches to differences, and effective communication, these educators enable students to share their diverse perspectives and learn from each other’s cultural knowledge. Moreover, teachers with ITC competencies exhibit a keen awareness of their own cultural identity and the potential influences of factors such as race, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and language proficiency on cross-cultural interactions.
