ADVANCED TECHNIQUES: Fostering Intercultural & Global Competence for Deeper Personal Transformation

Join this course to get hands-on training in using and adapting powerful techniques for fostering deeper intercultural and global competence with your target groups.

The first day focuses on experiencing then taking an in-depth examination with methodology designer Darla Deardorff, who initiated UNESCO’s Story Circles, a structured yet flexible methodology that has been implemented globally as a powerful way to foster intercultural and global competence and bridge divides, whether in the workplace, classroom or other communal settings. We will examine not only how you can adapt and integrate this methodology for your respective contexts and target groups, but how you can help other multipliers do the same.

On Day 2, we will draw on the rich experience of the group to share and try out a variety of advanced techniques used for working with diverse groups to bridge divides. Bring your toolbox and questions with you and we will learn together as experienced colleagues.
