Nermine Abd Elkader: Problems of a Multicultural Education in a Pluralistic Society

Nermine Abd Elkader, a partial-load Professor of English Language Studies at Sheridan, has recently had her article “Dialogic Multicultural Education Theory and Praxis: Dialogue and the Problems of Multicultural Education in a Pluralistic Society” published in Dialogic Pedagogy: An International Online Journal (an international online peer reviewed journal).

According to Nermine, “The purpose of this theoretical article is to highlight the role that dialogic pedagogy can play in critical multicultural education for pre-service teachers.… [All too often] the  many of the educational approaches—including the ones that claim dialogue to be their main instructional tool—could be described as undemocratic, and thus have done more harm than good for the multicultural objectives.” Nermine further argues that “dialogic pedagogy could be a better approach for critical multicultural education as it promises many opportunities for learning that do not violate the students’ rights of freedom of expression and freedom of association.” Follow this link to read the full article:
