This article reports a case study of students' reactions to a multicultural unit that incorporated computer software, videodiscs, videotape, and print media in an undergraduate educational psychology course. The purposes of the unit were to increase students' sensitivity to people from cultures different than their own, to provide an example of applying learning theories in teaching, and to model the integration of technology into instruction. The class consisted of 32 Caucasian females attending a relatively small, private university. At the end of the semester students believed that ethnic diversity in their future classrooms was more important than they did at the beginning of the semester. Many students believed the multicultural unit increased their understanding of cultural differences and recognized the need to learn how to deal effectively with cultural diversity in their classrooms. For the most part, they responded positively to the variety of media used in the unit.
