Intercultural Workshops for First Year Experience Courses
Intercultural Competence (ICC) Workshops
First year experience courses (FFL, ISL, Honors Colloquia, Freshman Seminars etc.) are an ideal setting for specially trained guest speakers to introduce the ideas and concepts of intercultural sensitivity. Depending upon your interest and the amount of time you could commit your class to for these ICC Workshops, there are three options available to instructors:
- OPTION A: General overview, which would include defining culture (objective and subjective), cultural self-awareness activities, and culture general knowledge activities (50 minutes);
- OPTION B: An introduction to the Developmental Model of Intercultural Sensitivity (DMIS) including a student video and post-video activity (75 minutes);
- OPTION C: Building on topics covered in A & B, this Workshop incorporates the internationally recognized Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI). This option would propose specific developmental strategies to help your students build their intercultural sensitivity, and would include a 'group' profile. Individual coaching tied to the IDI could take place outside the class. [This third option counts toward both the Global Leadership Program (GLP) and the Leadership Challenge programs.] (100 minutes)
