Cultural Diversity & Sensitization In The Classroom
Human beings cannot be devoid of culture. It is not just the language you speak or the religion you follow, culture is more about beliefs and one’s behavior as a social animal in the society. A classroom is a very crucial part of a student’s upbringing and interaction with each other, hence a tolerant and homogenous setup is of utmost importance which can be spearheaded by the teacher amicably and positively in the right direction.
In today’s global world, where we have students from very diverse and varied backgrounds, this sensitization assumes a lot more importance.
This webinar aims at discussing how innovative and creative approaches can be adopted by teachers to sensitize students towards the apparently differently appearing habits and people. In this way, what could be less understood by students will result in a beautiful co-existence of different cultural traits, opinions, and actions and lead to immense sensitization in the classroom.
Teachers’ role will therefore be that of a lighthouse, to guide the students to celebrate in a constructive manner their diversities.
We have arranged this webinar ‘Cultural Diversity & Sensitization In The Classroom’ to discuss the intricacies of this burning and useful issue. It is specially designed for the teachers who do not only teach the students the three R’s but also a lot more about handling life and its intricacies in the classroom.
We have arranged exclusively for this session Prof Nita Verma, Associate Professor of History who will be throwing in-depth light in the various cultural dimensions and challenges that exist in a classroom and have to be handled very delicately and with utmost care.
So, we are sure that through this webinar Prof Nita Verma will delve into the depth of the intricacies of being culturally aware in the classroom particularly to sensitize the diversified students that we normally cater to.
