    Multicultural Society and Education Studies 1, 30-52. In this thesis, I examined the various absurdities, prejudices, discrimination currently undergoing in Korea society through Korean films of representing sexual diversity <Troublers> and <Jane>. Although the perception of sexual minorities is gradually improving, Korean still has a high negative perception about it among the members of society. Furthermore, the possibilities legislating an independent law for same sex couples in other to granting legal protection to them are not high. As a way of promoting a more positive view of Korean, providing adequate protection for LGBTQIA in Korea society, I presented it from the view of education, law and policy, and religion. The reasons for it are because the members of the societies agree that the human rights of sexual minorities should be respected. To erase the shadows of discrimination against sexual minorities, educating prospective Korea society about the complexities of sexual orientation should be a key component of multi-cultural education. we live that changing times demanded a more flexible diversity and acceptance.

Among them Ministry of Justice's ‘Korea Immigration & integration program’ has received attention. Government's multi-cultural policies that have been criticized due to redundant support from similar polices of each department. Korean education is now in trend of combined as KIIP(Korea Immigration & integration program). KIIP is composed of "Korean language and Korean culture curriculum" and "Understanding Korean society curriculum". When one completes both curriculum, it provides incentive when one obtains nationality, residence permit or changing visa. In the past, one could participate in social integration program only through advance evaluation, but recently, as it is connected to Korean program and TOPIK program from multi-culture family support center, the proportion of not only the married immigrant but also the immigrated children from multi-cultural family, foreign students and foreign workers is increasing. However, despite the fact that the program has been operating for 9 years, there are no significant changes in the policy. For KIIP to play its role as representative Korean education by the government, there are many problems to be improved such as curriculum, time and evaluation system. This paper suggested expansion of education time, review on retaking system, review on evaluation system and connected programs after completion to make social integration program Korean language education to actualize its essential goal based on the current problem of Korea Immigration & integration program.

    Abstract PDF
    This study is based on a trial application of OBE (Outcome Based Education) system with customized modifications to an actual class in a Korean language education program. The application results are analyzed with the objective to identify the effects of the system on Korean language education. To achieve this goal, we first reviewed the concept of OBE and its application cases to develop an instructional model for Korean language education. The model was then applied to the “Korean Level 4” course offered by the Korean Language course at University “I” in Korea. The application and analysis were conducted in four stages: instruction preparation – in-class delivery of instruction I – in-class delivery of instruction II – evaluation and modification. The stages of in-class delivery of instruction were accompanied by counseling for foreign students. The effectiveness of the OBE based instruction was investigated by analyzing the before-and-after survey responses of the subjects on instruction, instructor, and factors outside the class. Statistical testing of the model on instructor and instruction produced an F-value of 23.61 and a p-value of 0.000, exhibiting statistically significant effects of the independent variables in the OBE application. This points to the difference made by the OBE instruction plan, which is differentiated from existing instruction plans and composed of different educational goals and educational activities (evaluation and assignments). In addition, it led to clear identification of intended learning outcomes (ILOs) and their objective and appropriate evaluation using the rubric assessment method. This study suggests a new direction for the design of Korean language education program in the future, given the limited prior research on OBE application in the field.

    Chun Su Hyun | 2018, 1() | pp.179~203 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    Korea is the only divided nation in the world. According to the preliminary report of the Ministry of Unification in September 2017, the total number of defectors is 31,093. In order for South Korea to overcome the conflicts between the two Koreas and to prepare and achieve unified Korea in the near future, it is very necessary to understand and study the reality of North Korean defectors and their suffering due to alienation, discrimination and prejudice that they feel in South Korean society. This will be reflected and helped in the multicultural research and education of Korea, which is rapidly progressing into a multicultural society. The number of North Korean refugees is increasing and is being influxed into South Korean society by various age groups such as age and education. As a result, education and systems for North Korean defectors are available, but no education is provided at the educational sites related to their understanding and North Korean defectors. It is enough that the school district grasps the number of students at each school every semester. In fact, most young people in middle and high school do not even know the term "defectors", and they do not know what reason and process they come to Korea to settle and live in. Most of them do not know about the reality of defectors. In this study, we interviewed 8 middle and high school students in Busan ​​city to find out how young people think about defectors, what kind of educational and understanding efforts they have made, It aims to find educational implications for students in society.

    Heo Hun | 2018, 1() | pp.204~227 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    The number of North Korean defectors is constantly increasing, with more than 30,000 people leaving the country to date. Women make up more than 70 percent of the total number. The study on North Korean defectors is mostly conducted by men and all of the North Korean defectors, although the study did not show any special characteristics of women, and the study conducted by 8.22 percent of the North's total population was based on women. Therefore, this study was designed to compare and analyze the general characteristics of the study on North Korean defectors and North Korean women who escaped from the country and to discover the uniqueness of North Korean women who escaped from the country by analyzing their studies. General characteristics analysis found that the research arm was limited, the research subjects were small, the ratio of direct research was high, and experimental design study lacked such characteristics as pre - and post-programmed comparison. This study focused on the study of North Korean women who have left the country to focus on defectors, so it excludes research on North Korean women and the North Korean regime, so it excludes the nature of North Korea in its regime.
