Facilitated by Angeline Chia
Intercultural competence has been described as the capability to shift cultural perspective and appropriately adapt behavior to cultural differences and commonalities. Research in intercultural competence of the past fifty years includes cutting-edge theoretical approaches such as the Developmental Model of Intercultural Sensitivity and the Intercultural Development Continuum that indicate that intercultural competence can be measured and developed.
This webinar will help participants to understand the Intercultural Development Continuum and the five orientations to cultural difference and similarity that determine outcomes in intercultural interactions. It will also help participants to appreciate the IDI by explaining the types of feedback that respondents will receive about their intercultural competence such as Perceived Orientation, Developmental Orientation, and the Orientation Gap. Participants will also gain the advantage of learning about an effective process for building intercultural competence,
