أبدع - Supporting intercultural capacity in the English classroom
A professional learning partnership event between the Islamic Museum of Australia and VATE taking place on June 5.
Equipping students with the intercultural knowledge, appreciation, skills and understandings is essential for their futures in an increasingly interconnected world. Developing students’ capacity to become responsible local and global citizens, prepared to engage respectfully in multicultural interactions is an integral component of their participation in a culturally diverse yet cohesive community. أبدع (pronounced 'abde') translates to 'get creative' – what we hope the day will inspire you all to do with your students.
