Intercultural Communication in Practice

 

Audience: Professionals who provide intercultural training and advising to students, faculty, and staff.

Workshop Description: International educators (are expected to) provide intercultural guidance to students going abroad and incoming international students, as well as to other constituents on an increasingly diverse campus. How we navigate these intercultural experiences can impact cultural adjustment and inclusion. Move beyond intercultural theory to develop your own facilitative framework to support intercultural learning among students, scholars, faculty, and staff.

Workshop Objectives:
Following this workshop, participants will be able to...

  • Use intercultural communication strategies to support cultural adjustment for incoming and outgoing students, faculty and staff
  • Diagnose needs, provide training, and measure growth using intercultural development models and instruments
  • Develop an intercultural learning framework to facilitate a responsive and inclusive community on campus
