Abstract [en]

Teaching students to embrace the idea of global citizenship involves raising awareness, appreciating differences and changing attitudes. Sometimes it is understood in terms of intercultural competence (Cushner, 2009, 2012). This process entails de-centering from one’s comfort zone and perspectives to the world, which can be challenging and raise resistance. The purpose of this presentation is to use Multiple Perspectives or Perspective Consciousness paradigm (Merrifield, 2003) to bring new insights to teaching global citizenship and intercultural competence. Barbara Thayer-Bacon’s (2008) work on pluralism frames our discussion. Participants will engage in hands-on and minds-on activities to deepen their experiential and conceptual understanding.
