Abstract

These intercultural learning modules will develop your understanding of cultural difference, diversity and the critical perspectives that will add a new and important dimension to your international experience. Intercultural learning requires more than developing your understanding of cultural customs or dos and don’ts. These modules will challenge you to think about the deeper issues of culture, race, imperialism, white privilege and cultural diversity that underpin all intercultural interactions. Intercultural learning also requires learning about ourselves. Approach these modules with an open mind and be prepared to critically reflect on your own perspectives, which shape your interpretation of intercultural experiences. Developing this critical perspective will prepare you to remain open to cultural difference, an important skill to establish as you set off on your intercultural experience.
