Overview

Cultural Diversity: International Perspectives, Impacts on the Workplace and Educational Challenges by Meryl Snider

To conceive the entrance of the individual to the culture, Bruner proposes the idea of an education susceptible to adapt a culture to the needs its members and to adapt its members and their manners to teach the needs the culture. According to him, "our actions are guided by values, standards which, far from being "natural", are cultural and “symbolic constructions" (Bruner, in 1999). He conceives the human development as a process of collaboration between child and adult, the adult being envisaged as mediator of the culture. This book discusses the international perspectives, as well as the impacts on the workplace and educational challenges of cultural diversity. Topics include naming and planning to overcome barriers to parent involvement in pre-service teachers' online discussions; factors influencing students' perceptions of training in cultural diversity competence; inclusion in higher education; how culturally diverse classrooms respond to instructional technologies; immigrants; moving toward a culture of diversity; culture diversity and identity; infotainment system features set adaptation to target cultures; and using teaching practices that motivate culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) nursing students to learn and succeed in their studies.
