Tensions Within a Cross-Cultural Online Course
Save to My Collections
The purpose of this paper was to explore tensions within a single cross-cultural online course. Participants were enrolled in the course “Teaching and Learning about Africa, at either a Midwestern United States university or a South African university. The tensions within the course: cross-cultural and online, cross-cultural and multicultural, reading and experience, problem-posing education and banking education, quality dialogue and quantity dialogue, synchronous and asynchronous, and a positive participant and a negative participant, were explored using the theoretical framework of Dewey (1902, 1915, 1916) and Freire (1970). The construct of tensions may be useful when developing or evaluating future courses.
