EDUC 6172 - Cultural Diversity and Motivation♦


(3 sem. cr.) Today’s diverse, multicultural world dictates that adult learners are not treated as a homogenous group but rather as distinct individuals, each with his or her own intrinsic motivations. Education professionals in this course learn the importance of culturally responsive teaching methods that promote respect, relevance, engagement, and academic success. They engage in readings and assignments focused on inclusive approaches that promote cross-cultural communication, and they explore and discuss a range of topics, such as race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, nontraditional learners, and linguistic diversity.
♦ Students may take this as a non-degree course, which means they do not have to be enrolled in a program. Contact an Enrollment Advisor [1-866-492-5336 (U.S.);1-443-627-7222 (toll)] for more information.
