Equity Roundtable: Enhancing Intercultural Development Framework: We Would Love to hear From You!
November 30 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST
You Jia Lee, Program Coordinator, Intercultural and Global Programs, International Education Centre, UTM
Rebeca Mahadeo, Student Development Coordinator, Intercultural Programs, International Education Centre, UTM
This session highlights tools and a framework you can put in place in your classroom to help students build intercultural skills, and gain global fluency in this ever connected world. The purpose of the framework is to provide direction and intentionality to intercultural programming across all three U of T campuses using best practices, theories, and principles. It is to be used as a guide of reference, supporting a common foundation of intercultural competence to better inform future programming and to be more intentionally integrated. The creation of this framework is supported by the International Student Experience Fund (ISEF). This project aims to not only enhance intercultural interactions and understanding among U of T students, staff, and faculty, but to also promote and strengthen intercultural development and global fluency at all three campuses.
By the end of this session, attendees will:
- Understand and be aware of an intercultural framework that can be applied to curricular and co-curricular settings at U of T
- Participate in an exchange with colleagues around best practices to promote an intercultural mindset in learning environments
