Module content and teaching

Principal aims

This module critically explores different theoretical conceptualisations and debates about globalisation and diversity, and examines their implications in the workplace context. We cover a range of topics, including ‘stereotyping, prejudice and racism’ and ‘multilingual workplaces’, and we also look at ‘the dark side’ of globalisation and diversity. The teaching style adopted for this module is very interactive and we will apply the various theorectical constructs and debates around globalisation and diversity to real-life scenarios.

Principal learning outcomes

By the end of the module students should be able to critically explore different theoretical conceptualisations and debates about globalisation and diversity, critically discuss the implications of globalisation and diversity in workplace contexts, and apply theoretical constructs and debates to real-life scenarios.
