EDINA Workshop 1: Primary Education

The first EDINA workshop for teachers, board members and other primary school personnel will take place on February 7 in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. In four hours, we will discuss intercultural competencies: how can intercultural skills be developed? Which support questions are there from the schools? How does plurilingual acquisition work, and how does it differ from monolingual acquisition? What are the challenges that Newly Arrived Migrant pupils face in Dutch education? Does the ideal education for multilingual students exist? What can teachers do to best supervise multilingual pupils?

In preparation for this workshop, we ask everyone to think about what their ideal school would look like, and bring us a list of criteria from the viewpoint of their current employment.
