What you’ll learn

Many people think that cultural learning will happen automatically, as soon as students are exposed to another culture when studying abroad, but all research shows that cultural learning has to be facilitated. Even the new Erasmus+ programme calls for accompanying cultural learning measures that go beyond merely assuring contact with a foreign culture. Through this hands-on course, you’ll learn how to create trainings that nurture the development of intercultural competence, and you’ll design an activity you can actually implement at your own institution. With simulations and group activities, this course is really a cultural training of its own!

  • Design a cultural training activity for your institution or programme
  • Get a well-rounded view of cultural learning opportunities in pre-departure, in-country and re-entry phases
  • Become familiar with research-based cultural learning concepts and assessment tools (emphasis on Intercultural Development Inventory [IDI])

How to get the most out of this course

This course is recommended for advisers with two or three years’ experience working with foreign students or with students who are planning to study abroad.
