Overview of the first learning pathway

In this learning pathway we begin by thinking about culture and what actually constitutes culture.

We then move onto an examination of culture in both Asia and the Pacific.

While thinking about the diverse cultures in this region, you should also think about your own cultural background and how this may have shaped who you are, what you believe in, and how you see and respond to the world around you.

  • list the complex factors that may be included in a study of culture,
  • identify and provide examples that illustrate the variability of culture across the Asia-Pacific region.
