EPA611: Intercultural Education

Module Purpose and Objectives

In this particular module we will examine the relation between education and ethnocultural differences, as well as the processes of prioritization and exclusion of the "different" that take place within a school context. Also, the focus is given on the analysis of educational practices through the perspective of pedagogical theory. Finally, the critical examination of the different forms that have identified such as  the "intercultural-multicultural" and / or "anti-racist education" aims to highlight the multiple questions raised at the level of practice.

Module Content

This module covers the important role of intercultural education. The main purpose of this module is to familiarize students with the current academic research in this area and to provide them with tools that will allow them to analyze educational reality and develop a pedagogical framework for navigating heterogeneity. This overall effort adopts an interdisciplinary perspective and seeks to highlight the particular ways and concepts through which different scientific views construct and study this particular topic. In particular, the relation between education and ethnocultural differences is examined and the processes of exclusion of the "different" student that take place within a school context are deconstructed. Specifically, the presentation of this topic begins by examining the historical views of intercultural education in different social contexts, and then focuses on the analysis of educational practices in the areas of multicultural/intercultural education.
