Teaching diversity is a critical consideration for today’s classrooms. This presentation regards an active learning exercise conducted in class as part of the curriculum for a course on Advertising. Its purpose is to encourage students to consider the portrayal of diversity in inclusive advertising, and to adopt different perspectives through the eyes of diverse audiences.
The exercise consists of a research component, role playing and in-class discussions around the students’ contribution, as well as contemporary case studies. The purpose of my presentation is to contribute to the ever-increasing bibliography of inspiring research and practices, on the topic of teaching diversity.
