Discussion for The Journey to Cultural Competence
5 years ago
Elizabeth Baker (Faculty)
While this material is specifically designed for the health care industry, the concepts of cultural competence can fit within the parameters of many service industries including education. The key mini modules that discuss: Knowledge, Skill, Awareness, Encounters, and Desires, sum up the need for greater understanding of the growing diversity within our communities. I plan on using this in my classroom as a supplement to our study of the Native American culture.
Easy to use, flexible, attractive.

This is a great tutorial! I wish I had found it before I did my lecture for cultural assessment in the classroom! Well done.
