Audio Episode 10 - Dr Linda Yang on Intercultural development

June 22, 2021

Episode_10_-_Plus_One_Podcast_-_Linda_Yang_-_...

We discuss Linda’s journey from Harbin China, through London, Durham and then to Dublin.  Changes in direction – academic to the practical, English language to intercultural studies, the hidden curriculum and the fundamental purpose of education.  It’s about attitude – learning never ends – faculty development is so important.  Establishing communities of practice, formal & informal learning.  Use frameworks for teaching & learning – like UDL. Adding diversity of teaching cases from different cultures into your curriculum, & personalising the learning journey for students. But… diversity doesn’t guarantee integration. Growing the Intercultural Development programme to being the first programme of its kind to be made available to all postgrad students in the School.  Key questions to ask your students in the end of term evaluations.  Being inspired by Temple Grandin.

 

“If the student sees this as a value, then they will put more effort to it…”

 

Key end of term evaluation questions:

  • What worked for you?
  • What didn’t work, and why?
  • What hasn’t been covered?
  • What else needs to be included?

 

Linda’s Plus One

“Have empathy for your students…Don’t judge them – postpone your judgement. What can you do to help the student learn better? ”.

Dr Dee McGillicuddy is a UCD Innovation Academy 2021 Fellow, recipient of UCD’s highest teaching award and has been nominated for a European teaching award for her Flourish Community initiative.

 For me, education is the foundation upon which we build our society. It’s the cornerstone of what we are doing.  If we don’t have a strong education system with strong values to underpin what we’re doing, then we don’t understand who we are as a society, and we don’t understand who we are as human beings within the broader world as global citizens...

Nothing about us, without us” – giving space for the voice of any community to come forward.  We discuss “the spaces in between”.

Growing up in a school of 12 pupils and 4 teachers, and always wanting to be a teacher, helping out as early as primary and post-primary school.  How early inspirational teachers & mentors like Mr Keegan & Mr Murphy (he wasn’t afraid to let people take a risk) fed Dee’s fire for primary teaching – taking the scenic route through Arts and Geography, through an Hdip, Master’s and then a PhD.   

Is this making a difference?” is Dee’s touchstone… The cracks in the system are not very far below the surface – raising the national consciousness around the impacts of poverty, deprivation and difference.  Even the physical size of children in disadvantaged vs more advantaged schools.  Researching the Traveller community and how marginalised, watched and surveilled they are. 

Concerns around the commodification & marketization of education – of education as a service, of the loss of relationship, active dynamic learning through meaningful interactions.  

Through Dee’s work with the UCD Innovation Academy, creating and promoting the Flourish community of practice for wellbeing and creativity in education – which has won UCD teaching awards and been nominated for European level awards.  “A tiny pebble dropped into the educational system – ripples down into people’s lives…

Plus_One_Podcast_-_Episode_7_-_Clodagh_Flemin...

We discuss how a brand-new suicide awareness campaign and short training introduced in Ireland in December 2020 has been taken by over a quarter of a million people so far, and has resulted in Ohana Zero Suicide being included in European Parliament consultations around European Good Mental Health – joining the dots and establishing European collaboration.  How a team of 16 volunteers have taken a short, impactful training and through connections and viral publicity, have created a movement, helping huge numbers of people and saving lives. 

 

And they’ve done this all through their own, self-funding.  Now they are looking for external funders and support to turn this amazing success into even wider reach – so if you can help, please get in touch at ohanazerosuicide@gmail.com  or www.ohana.ie

Plus_One_Podcast_-_Episode_6_-_David_Price_OB...

“Sharing what we make – the power of project-based learning”… We discuss how a Geordie musician from Jarrow who left school at 16 with a wooden plant-holder has survived 2 bouts of cancer, written 2 best-selling books on educational innovation as a self-taught author, and is now collaborating on a multi-media toolkit as a followup to “The Power of Us”.  Hear about one of the most amazing school’s in the world – the Líger Leadership Academy in Cambodia.   How a good editor improves your work, and why deadlines help focus.  How do we fix education to enable the young people who can change the world through informal learning & just doing it?  Working with Paul McCartney in Liverpool heading up the Institute of Performing Arts, helping start-up Musical Futures, setting up ripple effects. Influencing change through books, but also engaging with educators in innovative spaces like the UCD Innovation Academy.

 

Plus one – reach out to local organizations and tie your student projects in with real issues, like Austin’s Butterfly…  Yes, get out in the world, BUT also… “Above all, compassion”.

 

 “You’ve got to try and do something.  It’s no good just complaining about the education system – get in there and do what you can to change it.”

Lilian’s Plus One

Build in asynchronous options, for students who miss a Zoom or a class. Have a plan for them to get what they missed so students aren't penalized for missing, but they learn the same thing from watching the recording and responding to something from the synchronous session.
