Workshop on enhancing intercultural learning
From the Global Education Office, part of Outreach and International Affairs
The Department of Sustainable Biomaterials, College of Natural Resources and the Environment, and the Global Education Office are sponsoring a workshop on Enhancing Intercultural Learning Through Education Abroad, on Nov. 5, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., at The Inn at Virginia Tech and Skelton Conference Center.
In an increasingly globalized and complicated world, intercultural competency is critical. This workshop will help educators develop strategies and activities to increase student intercultural learning in all courses, but especially those that involve short-term study abroad. Participants will end the day with a better understanding of how to facilitate intercultural learning and with specific strategies that can be used in their courses.
The workshop will be led by Steven Duke. Duke is the president of the Institute for Cross-Cultural Teaching and Learning, and associate vice president at the University of Nebraska system.
Registration is $250 and can be completed on the Continuing and Professional Education registration website. The first 10 Virginia Tech registrants will receive a $150 scholarship provided by the Global Education Office.
