The community of Philosophical Inquiry in a Multicultural Context

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOtherpeer-review


The presentation focuses on how a group of teenaged young people from different cultural backgrounds engaged in building deeper interpersonal relationships after having engaged in community of inquiry based groups. Some of these people came from asylum seeking backgrounds and the focus of the discussion was on exploring the realities of college life as young people from an asylum seeking background experienced them. The presentation shows the importance of adopting a requisite facilitator style that is conducive to enabling participants to question reality from different perspectives.
