BCM289: Virtual Cosmopolitanism

Screen Shot 2017-10-16 at 1.20.11 PM

“It is important for us to acknowledge and respect each others’ perspectives — our ways of seeing the world — and to find that place where we can all meet, grow and learn. Perhaps the response to this challenge is the creation of the third cultural space.” (pg 9, http://indigenous.education.qld.gov.au/SiteCollectionDocuments/eatsips-docs/eatsips_2011.pdf)
