Diversity of human ideas, values, beliefs and behaviours
Culture is an oft used term, but not everyone who uses it has a clear understanding of what it means. By the end of this micro course you should have developed a clearer understanding of what constitutes culture, and you should be able to define the term. Students should also be able to list the complex factors that may be included in a study of culture. Finally, you should also be able to identify and provide examples that illustrate the variability of culture across the Asia-Pacific region.
