Abstract
  • This purpose of this paper is to summarize the principles of integrated multicultural instructional design (IMID; Higbee, Goff, & Schultz, in press; Higbee, Schultz, & Goff, 2010) and present specific strategies for incorporating IMID in management education. The primary goal of IMID is to promote the integration of multicultural content and diverse teaching and learning strategies in postsecondary curricula, programs, courses, and academic support services. Results of a pilot project will be presented that include student evaluations of faculty teaching methods; inclusion of multicultural course content; strategies for the assessment of learning; and commitment to diversity, multiculturalism, and social justice when IMID is embedded in the curriculum. This paper also includes a discussion of andragogy related to multicultural strategies and the creation of inclusive learning environments in collegiate management education.
