Teaching in Intercultural Settings

AQF: 6/7/8/9, on-campus

Wednesday Daytime Unit

EM014-612/712/812 + EM205-912 (Capstone) + EM206-912 (Specialised Studies)

Are you teaching, training, or discipling anyone from a different cultural background than your own? Or do you think you might be in the next few years? If so, this unit is designed to equip you to do this well.

We will explore biblical concepts, principles, and examples of teaching and learning, engage with key adult education theorists and practitioners from both western and non-western contexts, and examine case studies of cross-cultural teaching and learning. By evaluating and integrating insights gleaned from these different areas, you will develop an integrated philosophy of intercultural teaching and learning and apply it to create an educational plan for a specific cultural context.
