Course objectives
The purpose of the course is to deepen the knowledge of the students in the field of multicultural education as a means of preparation for the social, political, and economical reality through educational programmes. Multicultural education presupposes a certain human ability to understand and respect other cultures (national minorities, migrating foreigners, members of different nationalities, faiths, etc.). It includes practice, educational activity, infrastructure, research that captures the multicultural reality of scientific theory which emerges among sciences. Grasping the subject involves research in selected areas of multicultural education which allows students to penetrate the current issues of multicultural education. The goal is the ability to reflect on the current situation in the individual topics of ME (migration, gender, extremism, inclusion, xenophobia in the society, etc.) and apply the knowledge in theory and practice. The key outputs are: - definition of basic terms and directions (multiculturalism, pluralism, inclusion, gender, identity, racism, xenophobia, discrimination, prejudice, migration, anti-Semitism, feminism, extremism, homophobia, segregation, holocaust, etc.) - definition of multicultural education in the context of today’s society, multicultural education and multiculturalism = constructing theoretical foundations of multicultural education, cooperation with other scientific fields, e.g. with cultural anthropology, ethnology, ethnography, sociology, intercultural psychology, ethnopsychology, ethnolinguistics, pedagogy, social work and social politics, international law, - study of multicultural education in the context of multiculturalism which is defined as an “ideal of harmonic coexistence of different cultural and ethnical groups in plural society” - research reflection - project design in the field of multicultural education
