Course - Foundations of Intercultural Development (March - April 2020)

Course Description

The landscape of Canadian post-secondary education has shifted dramatically in the past decade with increased internationalization efforts alongside the Calls to Action (2015) from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada. As faculty and staff in the midst of this landscape it is critical that we each engage in our own intercultural development so that we might model the behaviours we wish to promote on our campuses.

You are invited to participate in Foundations of Intercultural Development, an online course, which will help you gain insights into your own cultural rules, norms and biases while also weaving in elements of truth and reconciliation.  The course design is visually-based and makes use of infographics and videos, replacing the need for lengthy reading required, though should you wish, the academic theories and models will be shared.  The delivery is asynchronous, so you can log in when you have the time, no matter which time-zone you are participating in.  While this course is designed as an introduction to intercultural and reconciliation issues, participating in this will not only engage you in your own development, but also connect you to a community of like-minded learners from across Canada, who may continue this work together.

Learning Outcomes  

  • Increase your awareness as to how your cultural influences can affect your intercultural interactions
  • Actively regulate your response or to be mindful of your communication style in the face of feeling stressed or challenged
  • Deepen your appreciation of and curiosity about cultural diversity
  • Respond to the calls for reconciliation by understanding some of the impacts of colonialism on Indigenous cultures in Canada
