Abstract

Challenges of engaging students on real world culturally sensitive topics in a general education transcultural course are the essence of this presentation. Strategies used to create a safe environment in which students are free to state beliefs and opinions also hold students accountable to listen and respect other viewpoints. To this end, utilization of ground rules on civility, evidence-based teaching principles, and classroom assessment findings will be explored in relation to selection of teaching methods.
