Assumptions about Multicultural Teaching

  • Multicultural teaching requires that faculty understand how students learn and how culture influences the teaching and learning process.
  • Some general research based principles can help faculty improve the teaching and learning process in multicultural classrooms.
  • Higher-education teaching issues are so complex and varied that faculty members need to determine how these principles apply to their particular disciplines, courses and students.
