Event description


Internationalisation of the curriculum is frequently talked about, yet struggles to be part of mainstream learning and teaching (Green, 2015). At GCU, a new initiative to address this is being piloted. The development of a new Intercultural Awareness workshop has been created as a baseline to which students will build on their understanding of cultural norms and values, and the unconscious bias that exists within our academic, social and working environment. This workshop will provide an overview of the interactive online and classroom-based initiative aimed at the GCU student community. You will see a demonstration of the workshop materials, Padlet discussion walls and TurningPoint interactive polling. The design has been created in an intuitive way to allow self-paced or tutor-led delivery. The objective is to develop student awareness in cultural differences and cultural diversity, providing a starting point for discussion and reflection on how this aligns with GCU’s Active and Global Citizenship.
