Effective mobility, engagement and inclusion all require the development of intercultural competencies (ICC). Join in as three experts share new and markedly varied approaches to facilitating ICC, including a UNESCO methodology being piloted around the world; a digital platform to develop teachers' reflection skills before and after mobility; and a tool for facilitators to evaluate ‘in the moment’ choices to deepen learning. Participants will be invited to share their approaches.
