The course focuses on the moral and theoretical potentials of cultural interconnectedness and is concerned with sustaining the pedagogy of inclusion in a world made of many cultures. The aim is to help the student to be able to approach difference with an open attitude, one that allows for tolerance of differences and commonalities. It includes the study of the various pedagogical models of interconnectedness. But it involves to an even more exalted dimension a close study of terminologies such as culture, inculturation, and interculturality. The course would help students to be prepared to actively engage with (inclusive) society as intercultural citizens. Difference becomes a resource rather than a nuisance.
