Hi Everyone, my name is Dr Chris Hale and would like to introduce myself as ‘manager’ of this forum for Cultural Infusion. Any queries or ideas you may have in applying our digital platforms in the classroom – here is the place to discuss, query, see what other teachers are doing with the platforms and generate ideas to bring a greater awareness of diversity and culture into the classroom.
As a brief bio, my BA Majors are Social Anthropology and Comparative Philosophy; a Grad Dip Ed; MEd (research in different forms of knowledge acquisition – University of Western Australia; and a PhD in Philosophy of Education from an anthropological perspective (University of Sydney). That is, my field is in developing ways of applying and enhancing knowledge acquisition – developing tools – for students to take into their community now and navigate a globalized world in the future; developing a sense of belonging and empathy towards the ‘other’.
I look forward to speaking to you all. We all love feedback here at Cultural Infusion, so your opinions and comments are most welcome.
