It is extremely important to be aware of your culture and ethnicity. It helps you to develop a better appreciation for music, dance, and other culturally appropriate subjects. Students also experience a more holistic understanding of their cultures. Cultural sensitivity enhances the student experience. It makes it possible to build a more nuanced understanding of the cultures most relevant to a given course or program.
We will work to develop cultural sensitivity training with all of our faculty. The most effective ways to train cultural sensitivity for our students and teachers include cultural competency courses that provide skills to recognize and act on cultural sensitivity issues in the workplace, cultural sensitivity workshops that help our faculty recognize and promote ethical cultural practices, and cultural sensitivity workshops with our students. At the end of a session we will hold a review session where we will discuss how we have addressed the sensitivity issues identified during the day. Students will learn from an expert on their culture who will be involved in the training.
What is the goal with the class?
Students develop their cultural sensitivity through the social dance training. They experience it in their daily life, at school, at work, and at home. The training strengthens their sense of identity as well as their cultural understanding and helps them to gain a greater appreciation for these cultures.
What is the syllabus like?
There’s a very detailed syllabus in the book, which includes all of the major points that are the focus, along with a section dedicated to each major cultural area of interest. The class is held in the Student Academic Office, on the first floor of the School.
What are some questions we may have in response to your class?
If we have questions about scheduling, please let us know! If you are curious about what to expect as a cultural sensitivity instructor at a community college, our campus coordinator will be happy to explain more.
This blog post originally appeared at a colleague blog (the one about the $250,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000th digit). I had a copy of that earlier post sent to a few people for a more formal review, and was pleased to find that the reviewers made no mention of my salary (which is why I didn’t have a salary at first). Now it’s an important story because, as many have pointed out already, salaries and the financial sector in particular can be just as opaque and secretive as other aspects of the economy.
I had been writing about finance as a hobby for
