German Teacher Conferences are held every year in India in various parts of the country. German teachers from schools, universities, colleges and other institutions meet to update their knowledge of foreign language teaching methodology as also their knowledge of the culture and civilization of German speaking countries.

These conferences are organised by the Goethe-Institut in cooperation with the Indian German Teachers' Association InDaF.

About the Conference

In cooperation with the Indian German Teachers' Association InDaF we organized  the German Teachers' Conference for teachers from North India and Nepal from 08.07. to 10.07.2022.

This year's conference took place primarily in offline format at the Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan New Delhi itself and we were therefore able to welcome all our teachers in person again after a long break on our premises.

Our topic for the conference this year was "Migration. Mobility. Diversity."

Languages are not immobile. Languages are mobile. They are constantly changing - just like we humans. We move, we change, we leave the old familiar and look for new beginnings. And in doing so, we all take different paths, and live in diversity. These ideas served as a starting point for our conference. We discussed how to teach German as a foreign language in these ever-changing times between home office, hybrid and face-to-face phases, but also to what extent we can prepare our learners as future migrant workers for a life in Germany. Of course, we also celebrated the diversity and beauty of the language in its entirety.

In informative lectures, interactive workshops and other activities we explored this topic. Of course, we also informed you about the current programmes and activities of the Goethe-Institut and InDaF like German courses and advanced training seminars in India and Germany. In addition, there was also a colourful cultural program and other activities such as raffles, quizzes and a spelling bee.

On Friday, 08.07.2022, we started the conference online so that everyone could join in from the comfort of their homes. On Saturday and Sunday, we welcomed you to the workshops and other programmes in offline mode at the Goethe-Institut.
