Classrooms in Australia and in international settings require teachers to develop intercultural skills and understandings. The new Australian curriculum notes the importance of intercultural understanding as it responds to ‘the imperative for all young Australians to become responsible local and global citizens, equipped through their education for living and working successfully in the globalised world of the 21st century’ (ACARA,2011).
This unit is a response to this imperative as it aims to;
- develop appropriate pedagogies and curriculum to teach cross-linguistically and cross-culturally; explore understandings around culture, identities and situatedness;
- understand the complexities of globalisation, sustainability, human rights in education settings;
- read different education policies and programs;
- review and apply teaching and learning materials; and
- develop practical strategies for cross linguistic and cross-cultural teaching.
This unit will complement the Global Experience Program, Study Abroad or other comparable experiences, however these experiences are not a necessary requirement for enrolment in this unit.
