Maintaining Cultural Curiosity in Ourselves

Health Federation of Philadelphia

Instructor: Laura Hinds MSW, LCSW
4/14/16 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM - Eastern Time

Act 48 & PQAS credits available - Course Fee - $14

After years in the field, we may believe that we can “write the book” on different cultures and their representations in our classrooms. This workshop will introduce the concept of Cultural Curiosity and discuss ways it can enhance the classroom environment and our professional practice. By exploring ways to revive and maintain that curiosity in ourselves and our students, we can open the door to new sharing and learning and a greater sense of community.

By the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Define Cultural Curiosity and how it relates to education
  • Analyze personal experiences with different cultures and how they impacted professional practice
  • Understand three ways to increase the level of Cultural Curiosity in ourselves and our students
