Overview

The course is intended to offer participants support in meeting the demands of a multicultural setting/environment/classroom.

With increased human mobility and increasingly thick networks of communication, the common social fact of unequal educational experiences and outcomes is increasingly the subject of transnational dialogue. The course stems out from the need to equip educators with the knowledge, aptitude and skills necessary to meet the increasingly challenging task of teaching across multicultural setting/environment populations.

For such processes to take place schools need to have strong value based leadership teams which promote equity and social justice, with a focus on inclusionary practices rather than a series of attempts at assimilative practices. Course participants aspiring towards leadership positions will have opportunity to challenge existing leadership practices and be in a better position to resolve conflict arising from cultural disparities. The course will serve as a springboard for those seeking positive change in setting/environments by addressing the needs of all staff, parents and students irrespective of race, ethnicity, religion, socio-economic or cultural origin.

Knowledge is gained through effective group sharing experiences. Participants will enhance their aptitudes and skills necessary to deal with cultural disparities present in the setting/environment/ classroom and effectively deal with them for the benefit of learners and the whole learning community. Intercultural competencies are then gained through role play opportunities and case studies.
