Webinar #2: Pre-Departure Cultural Preparation Courses: The “Nuts and Bolts” of Course Design and Implementation in a University Setting

Dr. Adam Henry

Tuesday October 3, 2017, 2-3 pm Eastern time

This is Webinar #2 in:

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

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

This webinar will add new resources to a practitioner’s toolbox as it relates to the development and implementation of university courses on cultural understanding. Dr. Adam Henry will speak to his teaching experiences and dissertation research that focuses on a credit-bearing course that introduces university students to intercultural awareness, understanding and development. While the course is informed and supported by theory and research findings that will be briefly discussed, this webinar will focus on how to utilize the experiences and research of the presenter as a platform to examine the “how” of developing a pre-international experience course. How do you design courses like this and what are the outcomes? How do you determine the course objectives and content? What should be considered before implementation?
