Developing Intercultural Teaching Competence: Developing Intercultural Communication Competence

Tuesday, February 15, 2022 | 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
The registration period has closed for this event.

Despite the critical role communication plays in academic interactions, communicating in a culturally diverse classroom often results in misunderstandings or even conflicts. To communicate effectively with students from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds, educators need to equip themselves with intercultural communication competence.

In this workshop, participants will explore intercultural communication in terms of identifying anticipated communication barriers and working collaboratively to navigate the cultural landscape in communication styles.

By the end of the workshop, participants will develop introductory-level competence that helps overcome communication barriers in a culturally diverse classroom.


Registration open through Tuesday, February 15, 2022
