Course DescriptionOne of the many challenges in the field of adult education today, is the phenomenon of diversity: diversity in race, ethnicity, gender, age, occupation, skills, education, sexual preference, physical abilities, and so on. In today’s learning environments, adult educators need to know how to effectively integrate diversity into their practice in order to successfully meet the needs of their learners. To do so, they must understand the multi-faceted nature of diversity. This module begins by focusing on understanding diversity by interpersonal sharing. Participants will spend time discovering insights into their own values, beliefs, and behaviours with respect to diversity. The intention is that participants will examine diversity in adult education and develop competencies to integrate diversity into their practice.
