Overview

The classroom is not, by any means, fixed by walls and chalkboard. It is in small and large communities, in the basements of churches, recreation centers, public housing units, hospitals, and hospices. In effect, the world is the classroom.

The authors in this work seek to uncover the cultural and philosophical underpinnings of the teaching-learning experience and the dynamics of curricular responses to changes within our society. They recognize the central role of faculty in delivering instruction in ways that are most understandable to culturally, gender, and age-mixed groups of students. They suggest ways in which the faculty members themselves, too, are learners as they seek to understand and implement teaching styles and techniques that will best provide their students with a rich and challenging education.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

The authors seek to uncover the cultural and philosophical underpinnings of the teaching-learning experience and the dynamics of curricular responses to changes within our society. They discuss the central role of faculty in delivering instruction in ways that are most understandable to culturally, gender and age-mixed groups of students. They also suggest ways in which the faculty is “learners” in that they are teaching themselves to implement and understand teaching styles and techniques that will best provide their students with a rich and challenging education.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: JoAnn D. Long, RN, MSN (Lubbock Christian University)
Description: This new NLN Press Series text is a presentation of how to develop a broader understanding of cultural diversity by exploring writings on culture, community, and curriculum in the context of nursing education and practice.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide the reader with insights gained from the Transcultural Leadership Continuum (TLC), a project that resulted in an increased commitment to cultural diversity, innovative teaching, learning, and curricular experiences among faculty and students. This is an important text for healthcare professionals who want to increase their cultural competence.
Audience: This text is written for nursing faculty and nursing students,and selected experience-based examples of teaching, learning, and curricular experiences in cultural diversity are presented, based on the editors' experience in the four year TLC project funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
Features: The content of this text offers the opportunity for faculty and student to examine the ethical and philosophical underpinnings of culture and practical applications to the teaching learning experience. Faculty are challenged to grow in relationship to the academic success, quality of educational experience, and retention of culturally diverse students. Students, through the exploration of community, are presented with examples of culturally diverse patients, their values, beliefs, and rituals in relationship to healthcare delivery.
Assessment: This text offers much to faculty and students desiring a deeper understanding of cultural diversity. It differs from other works on cultural diversity in that it reflects lessons learned from the TLC project. Further, it points to the potential for greater societal unity based on an increased understanding of this important subject.
