Aim

Classrooms around the globe becoming more and more diversed, both in terms of cultural background and languages spoken in the classrooms. QuiCC (Quality in Culturally Diversed Classrooms) is a small-scale qualitative project which aims to explore what constitutes quality in teaching in relation to culturally diverse/plurilingual students in Nordic classrooms.

The study makes use of existing data produced by projects within the QUINT research centre, mainly video data from LISA Nordic  Study (Linking Instruction & Student Achievement”.

This project is part of the theme one “Studying teaching quality” within QUINT.
