Offered in Fall 2010  ·  Previously offered in Fall 2009 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

Self-awareness, understanding of difference and ability to do contextual analysis are key to the development of effective leadership skills. In this course, focused experience and reflection on selected visits, readings, lectures, and class seminars, will introduce students to the practice of reading individuals and cultural systems as living texts. The broad issues of post-modernity, plurality, inculturation, mission and positionality form the background to engage questions of otherness and the construction of individual and communal identities. Evaluation includes participation in field visits outside of class, small group discussions and a pass on three short reflection papers. Successful completion of this course is required for enrollment in Contextual Education II EMF3020YY.  *Students enrolling in this course are required to participate in the Orientation visit on September 9, 2010. (Please dress comfortably and casually, including footwear.) Proof of a police check is required.
