Thursday, March 18 and Thursday, March 25, 7 p.m.
In this two-part workshop, sponsored by the Adult Religious Education and Spiritual Development team and facilitated by Joe Hoff, participants will learn what intercultural competence is and how to develop it.
The first session on March 18 will discuss the definition of “culture” and describe a model of how one develops intercultural competence. The second session on March 25 will discuss the use of a tool to help participants understand how their own cultural biases can prevent them from considering other worldview perspectives. The focus will be mainly on an international level, although the sessions will also cover American regional and non-majority cultural differences and similarities as well.
Joe has a Ph.D. in International Education, over 25 years experience in intercultural training, and works at UNC Charlotte, where he assists students, faculty, and staff in developing their global competencies.
