Description: This session is the final installment of the series where participants will begin to take advantage of their cultural competence and apply it to every unique situation. This session is all about Efficacy (Bandura, 2001) among adults, learners and the community. Developing a Collective Efficacy (Goddard, Hoy, & Hoy 2004) – belief in me, belief in colleagues, colleague’s belief in me, belief in the community as a whole, and the community as a whole belief in organization – allows us to develop a sense of Trust (Goddard, Salloum, & Berebitsky, 2009) with and among groups that are different than us. Rust has been found to be a mediator of multiple factors including race, economics, gender, biases, and misinterpretations. Once trust is established, there is a greater connection and belief in the positive outcomes of a group and organization. Culturally different learners and adults have to develop a sense of efficacy in order to develop trust. Takeaways from this session would explore the strategies used to develop a multicultural world view and culturally relevant and responsive pedagogy as frameworks for helping develop efficacy in order to establish trust with the community, with students, with personnel and within the organization as a collective.
