Course Description

The course has been divided into 2 modules (5 topics), each of which is broken into relevant topics related to the theme of each module. Within each topic, you will be expected to respond with at least one post to one or more discussion questions (posting anonymously is also available).

Additionally, you will be supported to write a reflection on a major theme introduced in two of the topics. The process of reflective writing will encourage you to reflect on how your responses to others are influenced by your own culture and experiences.
