5th open discussion for UCY teaching staff:
Topic: Globalisation, diversity, and teaching students Cultural diversity has become increasingly common in many countries, including Cyprus, with the impact of globalisation.   Whatever profession students choose, they will inevitably work with colleagues and clients from diverse backgrounds. Thus developing a global outlook along with skills to work effectively with those from different cultures is quickly becoming a key graduate attribute. Join this session to learn about how to mould your teaching to support student development in these key areas.
