PhD Scholarship in Intercultural Understanding in primary and secondary schools
This study addresses questions of national and international educational and social significance: what facilitates/impedes intercultural understanding (ICU) in children/adolescents and schools? How can these be addressed? How can we know what makes a difference? It uses a cultural systems approach, methodological and technological innovations, and a large-scale national study alongside longitudinal multimethod, multicohort studies in schools. It will produce the first psychometrically validated ICU assessment instruments, national ICU benchmarks, and explain national ICU ‘hot & cold’ spots; and identify critical incidents in the biographical formation of ICU and effective school strategies for improving ICU outcomes in children/adolescents. Industry Partners: Victorian Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD), Together for Humanity Foundation, Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA), and Pukunui (Moodle) Technology.
