This webinar explores the experience of growing up cross-culturally and the implications for educators teaching students from a variety of diverse backgrounds. It examines the often unrecognized growing student population coming back to the US for college after years of living as expatriates outside of their home country, which is the US. Additionally, students of minority cultures already living within the US face cultural identity issues as they daily transition between their homes and schools.

Learning objectives:

  1. Define and discuss hidden diversity: {"Hidden diversity: A diversity of experiences that shapes a person’s life and world view but is not readily apparent on the outside, unlike the usual diversity markers such as race, ethnicity, nationality, etc.” (Bethel & VanReken, 2003)

  2. Gain an understanding of the reasons why educators need to recognize and understand hidden diversity, who cross-culture kids and global nomads are and how to better support success.

  3. Understand the challenges and strengths of students from cross cultural backgrounds.
