The Managing Diversity in International Educational Environments Competence Matrix is a theory and research-based tool for enabling quality assurance in international educational settings. The matrix was developed to support Finnish-educated educators when they take up positions in other countries. It has been designed using empirical data provided by Finnish-educated professionals having experience of working abroad in a variety of countries. Data comprising ‘voices from the field’ has been examined alongside topical research on diversity management in education.
The matrix is structured according to 15 thematic competence areas. Click on each area to see indicators specifying a set of attitudes (mindset), knowledge, and skills needed for managing diversity in international educational environments.
