Intercultural Education: A theoretical Approach to Cultural Value Orientations

Abstract

As multiculturalism has become the matter of the day, it is not only the business world that must adopt to changes; the academic sector must also deal with the trend as well. As such, the necessity to accomodate cultural diversity has become more apparent. Education not only helps to make sense of the local culture, it offers individuals insights and skills they need to survive in the changing world. Only through multicultural education can people learn about those problems and issues that cut accross ethnic, national, and gender boundaries and learn to understand how other groups process experience in ways that may differ from our own perceptions. This paper aims at highlighting some of the main models of cultural value orientations and applying them in real-life and everyday educational and teaching contexts.
