From Theorizing to Connecting: A Four-Step Process for Developing Interculturally

Wednesday April 5, 2017, 4:00 – 5:00 pm Eastern time

Presenter: Mick Vande Berg

This is Webinar #3 in:

Intercultural Competence Development through Education Abroad: Key Concepts, Practical Applications

(A series of four webinars on intercultural learning through education abroad, Spring Semester 2017)

Research from a wide array of disciplines and traditions—neuroscience, development studies, intercultural communication, physics, social and clinical psychology, and mindfulness practice, among others—richly inform our understanding of intercultural development. The challenge we face: How to apply these research-based insights to the intercultural training that we offer our students. This webinar introduces a four-step intercultural learning process that allows us to help our students—and ourselves—respond more effectively and appropriately to culturally different others.
