Welcome to the English "Intercultural communication and teacher education" website

Our current work focuses on conversation analytic research on classroom interaction in multilingual and multicultural learning settings and on case-based teacher training that aims at the professionalization of (prospective) teachers in terms of working in classrooms that call for an orientation to the students' diverse cultural backgrounds and first languages.
