In certain circumstances when virtual or hybrid model of teaching and learning must be in place, teachers and students may encounter challenges in areas such as effective virtual teaching and learning strategies, classroom management, intercultural interaction and resource development. This presentation will introduce how intercultural teaching approach and intercultural competence (based on Byram, 2000; Deardoff, 2006; & Sharifian, 2019) will help respond to some of those challenges and what available digital resources have been used to support the virtual and hybrid teaching.
The presentation also showcases experiences of some international students and teachers in Australia and specific examples of what has worked and has not in the transition to virtual and hybrid model. It invites the reflection among the Vietnamese teacher participants to enrich the discussion around effective virtual teaching and learning from an intercultural perspective.
