Release date: 25 November 2015

Cultural Intelligence (CQ) is a multifaceted type of intelligence with four key capabilities: motivation, cognition, meta-cognition and behaviour. CQ can be assessed and it can be developed. This webinar will explain what cultural intelligence is, why it is so relevant for students today, and examine how it can be incorporated into learning and professional development for students.

The webinar will draw upon case studies from three universities, considering why they are using the CQ model, and highlighting some shared pedagogical approaches for developing CQ with students.
