Responding to Diversity: Global Perspectives CNA157


The Global Perspectives Program aims to facilitate the development of cultural competence by bringing you on a journey of discovery about your own worldview and the worldviews of others; your attitude towards, and knowledge of, cultural differences; the way you  communicate, and how this is has been influenced by your worldview and experience.  This unit is based on the understanding that the acquisition of cultural competence is an ongoing, life-long process, something we get better at the more we engage with other people – both from our own culture and from cultures other than our own. The unit emphasises the development of skills acquisition and communication practices that respond effectively to diverse groups to promote autonomy, control and wellness and also aims to assist students to develop self-awareness, self-critique and reflective skills.
