ASSET session titled "Celebrating Diversity" on Saturday, September 12, 2015

Dear Member,

This month ASSET is organizing an interactive session onCelebrating Diversity. The details are as follows:

Session’s objectives:
We reside in a culturally diverse world. Culture is a dominant factor that influences both our daily actions and the decisions we make. The understandings of culture and diversity are often restricted to its visible aspects like food, language, cloth and alike. The link between these visible components of culture and the non –visible features including ideas, belief, values and tradition is an important factor of the study.

  • That session will take participants on a journey from introduction, to understanding and celebration of diversity.
  • It help participants to draw connection between subjects taught to students and how the theme of celebrating diversity can be infused within them, and why?
  • The methodology undertaking traverses from guided inquiry to investigation and finally concluding with reflection.

This event has been particularly designed to share the significance of inculcating diversity in classroom learning and discuss engaging methodologies with all the participants.
