Here Comes Everyone—Teaching in the Culturally Diverse Classroom

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

It is a fact that the demographics of Alberta’s schools are changing dramatically, and this means that teaching practices and strategies that once worked may no longer be as effective. This workshop will explore the concept of cultural competence. Cultural competence provides an approach for examining beliefs, attitudes, policies, structures and practices to enable schools to work effectively cross-culturally. Cultural competence replaces earlier ideas of cultural sensitivity and awareness, which are often embraced but typically result in little change in individual or organizational behaviour. Participants will begin to learn how to develop greater capacity to engage in cultural self-assessment and become more conscious of the dynamics of intercultural interactions.
