תיאור:

This course will be different from any you have taken until now, both pedagogically and technologically! The assignments and activities on the course take place in a unique virtual world. Until now the emphasis in courses on multiculturalism has been to introduce the student to the other by means of films, stories and articles and not through getting to know the other personally, and even to step into his/her shoes.

However, in this course, in order to get to know the other and be exposed to different cultures, we will approach multiculturalism from a number of angles; we will enter a virtual space where you will meet people and get to know something of their worlds. During the course you will work collaboratively with six other students from diverse cultural backgrounds. Each group will receive a virtual island and will build knowledge together. You will take on tasks that include simulations and role play.

Each study unit will broaden perspectives on the topics through academic literature, and we will discuss the implications for education and classroom practice. During the units you will be asked to reflect and share with your group your experiences.

  • You will deal with personal and group identity and the connection between our identities and the surrounding society.
  • You will examine whether multiculturalism is an existing fact, or a value in society, and you will learn about the many benefits of it.
  • You will discuss, in depth, dilemmas of multiculturalism in the global world, and get to know different perspectives on those issues.
  • You will study empathy and how one can foster empathy between groups.
  • You will consider multiculturalism in classrooms, delving into the tendency to divide into categories in general and among students in particular, and ways to deal with it.
  • You will discuss perspectives on language, the mother tongue and the connection between language and culture.
  • Finally, you will examine what is happening in multiculturalism in the world today.
  • The course concludes with an escape room in the virtual world which goes over the material covered in the course.
