Description:

Focused intercultural learning pedagogy coupled with an understanding of
power, privilege and positionality is critical in our work as international
educators.*

*This workshop will provide participants with an introduction to
intercultural learning, what it is and what it’s not in the context of
global experiential learning and study abroad programs. The sessions will
overview a four-phase developmental model for cultivating the fundamentals
of effective intercultural skills and will help participants develop
awareness of their own cultural identity and recognize intercultural
diversity in practice.*

The best (and first) step for international educators to facilitate
intercultural learning in their students is to begin to set goals, engage
mindfully, practice and reflect on their own intercultural development.
This is the first part of a workshop series that is focused on the role of
educator as intercultural learner first and foremost. Future sessions will
build on this core competency to expand the focus to include writing
intercultural learning outcomes with matching assessment methods as well as
facilitating intercultural learning for our students.
