FEATURE STORY International partnerships: Helping educators and students understand difference
On 14 July 2016, participants attending the International Baccalaureate (IB) Conference of the Americas in Toronto, Canada had an opportunity to expand their knowledge about Muslim diversity by attending a pre-conference day titled Understanding difference: Many Muslim Voices, offered jointly by the Aga Khan Academies and the Aga Khan Museum. To help students value difference, educators themselves need to be exposed to new ways of looking at the world, for example through examining culture, history and diverse forms of human expression, and to explore how understanding of difference can be built within their own school communities.
