Comenius International Week

This international week will equip future teachers to prepare for a teaching career in a globalized world. As the seat of many European institutions, Strasbourg is the perfect place to study how to teach in an international environment. In a city with a rich intercultural history, we will study what tools educators need to succeed with students from a variety of linguistic and cultural backgrounds.

Founded in the 16th century, the University of Strasbourg has a long history of excellence in higher education. Today, the university welcomes over 52,000 students and over 3,000 researchers. The INSPÉ (Institut national supérieur du professorat et de l’éducation or Faculty of Education & Lifelong Learning) prepares future teachers for careers in education and confers a variety of education degrees.

Class sessions throughout the week will focus on topics including interculturality, plurilingualism, translanguaging and teaching in an international environment. 

The participants will also have the chance to exchange with future French educators who are preparing to take a national certification test to teach French internationally (the CAPEFÉ, Certificat d’Aptitude à participer à l’Enseignement Français à l’Etranger).
