Learning outcomes
The aim of the course is to prepare students for the pitfalls of the consequences of a globalized world in the communication environment of the Czech school and education system in general. In a situation where, in addition to pupils from minority backgrounds (Slovak, Roma, Polish), pupils and students from non-European areas with diverse cultural backgrounds (especially Vietnam, Russia, Ukraine, other countries of the former USSR, China, Balkan countries, Lebanon, Israel, etc.), the demands on the cultural outlook and communication skills of teachers of social sciences, including history, are also increasing. The aim of the course is to acquaint students through reading, lectures and practical exercises with the historical and cultural background of the development of selected regions in the recent past (especially in the 20th century). Thanks to this, they can not only better understand the different view of the past of students with other than Central European family backgrounds, and thus better cope with the difficulties of intercultural communication. The purpose of the course is to use the apparent obstacle in pedagogical work in favor of the application of communication skills and building key competencies in global processes, multiculturalism, social communication, media literacy and teamwork.
It corresponds to the definition of the subject and to the demands given in syllabus.
Fulfilment of previous study obligations, see the study program.
