Reflection Activity 1
Have you ever been in a situation where you were in a minority? Visited a foreign country? Been the only girl/boy at a social event?
Consider how you felt and reacted?
Did you change the way you communicated?
Were you more reluctant to communicate or speak in a group situation?
Did you think more before you spoke?
Can you relate this to how a student might feel if they were in the minority?
Reflection Activity 2
Have you worked with a student from a CALD background?
Review each of the points within Supporting Students Cultural and Linguistic Diversity. For each point, answer the following questions:
Did I do this well during the placement?
If not, how could I have achieved this?
Can I realistically achieve this in future experiences with Clinical Education of CALD students?
