PELSB Approved Cultural Competency Training for K12 Educators

Cultural Competency Training for K-12 Educators is a Minnesota Professional Educators Licensing and Standards Board (PELSB) approved series of online modules that meet k-12 teacher licensure renewal requirements in cultural competency. This 100% online series will provide for the following learning outcomes:

  • Module 1 - Understand the contributions and lifestyles of various racial, cultural and economic groups in our society.
  • Module 2 – Understand how to recognize and deal with dehumanizing biases, discrimination and prejudices in the classroom.
  • Module 3 - Understand the cultural content, worldview, and concepts that comprise Minnesota-based American Indian tribal government, languages and culture.
  • Module 4 – Understand how to recognize and deal with institutional and personal racism.
  • Module 5 – Understand religious diversity and recognize and address misconceptions as they arise.

  • Module 8 – Know about areas of exceptionality in learning, including disabilities, perceptual difficulties, and special physical or mental challenges, gits and talents.

This online course provides ample opportunity for interactions with the instructor and other educators through online discussion posts. Modules will involve reading and reacting to articles, watching videos, reviewing resources, reflecting on checklists; all to encourage the application of learning to the educator’s specific classroom environment.
