In the conference all engaged partners shared and discussed their experiences and best practices on what are the main challenges in a multicultural classroom from study cases in each of the partner institutions, examined the model of a multicultural classroom from the teacher’s perspective, the hardship of human race - finding the common and defining the differences and were introduced with Erasmus Plus Experience between Estonia and Jamaica “3D Spatial Thinking as a Teaching Tool in a Multicultural Curriculum”.
The conference made an overview that multiculturalism is indeed inevitable today’s reality in universities, colleges and schools in all Baltic countries. Teachers and administrative staff have to prepare their mindset for culturally diverse student environment and new everyday challenges. In this way they need to adapt and learn new study approaches and working methods, as students come from different cultures with different backgrounds and experiences. Multicultural classroom develops our education environment, working organization and mutual communication, as well as the country itself, therefore we should be ready to support and help institutions with internationalization processes at all kind of levels.
