 As Hokkaido University internationalizes both its campus and curriculum, important questions emerge for instructors: How can we engage students from diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds in our classrooms?
 This workshop will engage participants in hands-on re-design of a learning activity or assessment to better support the learning of all students in international classrooms. Using the principles of intercultural teaching competence, participants will work together in small groups to critically analyze and re-design an assignment or learning activity in their course, in order to create a learning experience that supports and challenges international students as well as local students, engages students from diverse disciplinary backgrounds, and encourages interaction among learners.
