Broadening Course Objectives to Incorporate Diversity



As the information revolution brings the world closer, teachers are obligated to prepare students for living and working in a global society. English instructor Shellie Orngard received a Culture Corps Grant for the 1999–2000 academic year to broaden the existing Business Communication undergraduate class to include business communication in a diverse environment. In this workshop, she will discuss (1) specific approaches to incorporating diversity that can be applied to any classroom, (2) the value of experiential learning, and (3) dealing with denial and backlash.
