Intercultural competence is more important than ever, wherever in the world we live and work. But what do we really know about how to develop such competence? What do theory and practice tell us about how to gain maximum development quickly?
One exceptionally rapid, proven way to successfully improve cross-cultural competence is to use the MashUp: a natural and powerful combination of two leading intercultural competence development processes: Cultural Detective (CD) and Personal Leadership (PL).
This fourth-month course will transform your professional practice. It will enable you to use the MashUp in a developmentally appropriate manner to support and stretch learners at all stages of intercultural development. All work will be conducted virtually, allowing you to complete the coursework from your office, home, or during travels. You will need online access and a headset.
The course is facilitated by Dianne Hofner Saphiere, Heather Robinson, and Barbara F. Schaetti. Milton Bennett, creator of the DMIS (Developmental Model of Intercultural Sensitivity), normally joins us for part of the course.
