Diversity in Groups: A Connected Learning Experience


Tue, Nov 18, 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM PST
Hangouts On Air – Broadcast for free

What happens when university students in California are connected with university students in Japan to teach each other about diversity in groups? Join us to for this Hangout on Air to find out! This is a question that Jaimie Hoffman and Mario Perez recently explored. The two professors took a non-traditional approach to college teaching by designing an environment that empowered students in the U.S. and Japan to learn from each other about how topics like stereotyping, prejudice, discrimination and Hofstede’s cultural dimensions are experienced by individuals in other countries. The students were brought together through VoiceThread conversations, which enabled discussion using asynchronous voice commenting.
