Putting Old Tensions to Rest: Integrating Multicultural Education and Global Learning to Advance Student Development
Charles, Harvey; Longerbeam, Susan D.; Miller, Angela E.
Journal of College and Character, v14 n1 p47-57 Feb 2013
Multicultural education and global learning have long been acknowledged by higher education professionals to be necessary in advancing student development. Both of these agendas overlap in significant ways and can be characterized as two sides of the same coin. Notwithstanding, there has been a historical divide, even a tension between these two elements, that has resulted in their moving on separate tracks towards the same goal of student development. This article discusses a successful approach that uses learning outcomes as the mechanism to integrate these two elements in order to achieve meaningful student development.
