Feedback form is now closed.
Teaching and assessing knowledge of other cultures (products, practices and perspectives) is fairly straightforward, but teaching and assessing a student’s ability to use that knowledge to successfully and appropriately interact with those from target cultures is much more complex. How do we know if students are developing the skills of empathy, openness and curiosity needed for intercultural competence? How can we measure their learning? This session will offer a quick review of theories and models of intercultural competence and focus on examples of how to teach and assess intercultural competence in the classroom, on trips or study abroad, and on the program level. Participants will engage in intercultural learning activities and be asked to share their experiences and brainstorm ways to improve teaching and assessment of intercultural competence in their schools.
