EDPB5014: Intercultural Education

In this unit students explore a range of themes that relate to concepts of culture, cultural diversity and inter-cultural communications. These include education and culture in the context of globalisation and homogenisation / heterogenisation debates. Students work with case studies of cultural diversity and inter-cultural education in the domains of policy, management, curriculum teaching and learning, and develop a special study of cultural diversity and intercultural education in a selected international education context.
