World Council for Intercultural & Global Competence: Virtual Intercultural Competence (USA but Online)

EventsWorld Council for Intercultural & Global Competence: Virtual Intercultural Competence Symposium, 3 October 2022, 4-7pm (Eastern time). Online.

Virtual Intercultural Competence learning has grown tremendously as a response to the sudden lack of in-person mobility during the Covid-19 pandemic. Now that a return to physical mobility is occuring, how can we continue to promote and perfect the use of virtual options, especially as a way to further intercultural competence development, enhance classroom learning and connect communities? In this half-day symposium, the Virtual ICC working group of the World Council of Global and Intercultural Competences invites all to join in open spaces for discussion and learning, to hear about promising Virtual ICC practices across cultures and disciplines, and discuss how to establish virtual ICC learning as part of a toolbox of valuable ICC strategies. Future ICC learning needs to address various spaces, approaches, and forms of collaborative, experiential learning so that people from all over the globe can learn from and with each other in building a better world together.
