Coming in Spring 2017!

How to train across the Intercultural Development Continuum

Developing Students in Denial

  • Do you have students in your class/organization who are not yet aware of cultural differences?  
  • Do they seem to know how things work in their own culture and assume that it's more or less the same elsewhere?  
  • Do they say things like, "I've traveled a lot.  I can deal with any culture without much thought," or "As long as we speak the same language, there's no issue"?  

Perhaps these students are in what the IDC terms denial.  Would you like to be more effective in developing intercultural learning for these students?

Date:  Tuesday, February 28, 2017

Time:  1:30-2:00--Refresher on what Denial looks like (optional)

          2:00-3:00--Workshop on working with students in Denial

Location:  Black Cultural Center, Multipurpose Room 1

Developing Students in Polarization, Part 1

  • Do you have students in your class/organization who are aware of cultural differences but thinking about the topic can make them feel intimidated or threatened?  
  • Perhaps they see "us" as better than "them, or perhaps they admire another culture and view their own as inferior?  

Perhaps these students are in what the IDC terms as polarization (defense/reversal).  Would you like to be more effective in developing intercultural learning for these students?

Date:  Wednesday, March 15, 2017

Time:  1:30-2:00--Refresher on what Polarization looks like (optional)

          2:00-3:00--Workshop on working with students in Polarization

Location:  France Cordova Recreational Sports Center, Boilermaker Room

Developing Students in Polarization, Part 2

Many of our colleagues across campus were busy on study abroad trips during this meeting--held during Spring Break--and asked if there was a way to make it up.  In order to accommodate, and because there are just so many great materials that can be used to develop students in the stage of Polarization, PICLCoP is offering a Part 2 at our next meeting.

Date:  Monday, April 10, 2017

Time:  1:30-3:00--Workshop on working with students in Polarization, Part 2

Location:  Black Cultural Center, Multipurpose Room 1
