Living and Working with Cultural Diversity XBR104

Hobart

Introduction

Become better prepared to deal with the variety of culturally challenging situations you will encounter in whichever part of the world you live and work. Develop an appreciation of the personal and professional benefits which come from being more culturally aware and competent in increasingly diverse settings. Explore what it means to belong to a culturally diverse, global society and be challenged by the social constructions of race, ethnicity, and culture. This unit provides a firm foundation for understanding and dealing with real world issues relating to culture and cultural differences. It will help you come to a clearer understanding of your own worldview, way of being, and use of language, and how they potentially affect your communication and interactions with others. Your teaching team is a group of culturally diverse and highly qualified academic and professional staff from three Faculties (Health; Arts; Science, Engineering & Technology) and the Division of Students & Education. All of them are able to draw on their considerable knowledge and experience of living and working with cultural diversity in their own and other countries.
