Here’s a glimpse of the Syllabus via the learning aims. We’ll post the syllabus in mid-December.
|This seminar will become a place where participants…|
|Interact with – respond to, analyse, discuss – readings in a reflective practice mode, reviewing through multiple lenses, considering diverse perspectives, addressing personal contexts, and imagining professional possibilities.|
|Develop a personal – contextual, robust and dynamic – understanding of MILT through participation in discussion forums and activity workshops.|
|Engage ideas in multiple ways – spoken, verbal, visual/audio, and written – in order to create teaching/learning activities and/or artifacts.|
|Apply core course design constructs – course alignment, universal design for learning, and a range of critical multicultural pedagogical principles – to one’s own teaching roles and learning responsibilities in higher education.|
|Stretch to create among ourselves – and often beyond this course – learning spaces akin to those we seek for our students as we exchange and expand our viewpoints through our new interactions.We propose these aims also as a necessary foundation for creating a learning community that practices inclusive listening, dialog and creation of alliances as part of bridging our divergent ideas, insights and identities.|
