About the Event

The sudden shift to an online platform in a number of intercultural contexts was done quickly, and without the luxury of careful planning and phasing in. How has this affected intercultural practitioners? Hear from an educator, a trainer and a researcher about how the pandemic has impacted their work, and what adaptations they have made as a result. A discussion will follow to allow participants to share their own experiences and learn from others.   

By participating in this session you will:

  • Learn how the pandemic has affected other intercultural practitioners
  • Gain tips to increase intercultural engagement in an online platform
  • Learn strategies for developing and maintaining  relationships, and fostering empathy in the challenging online environment
  • Learn some best practices for shifting from the face to face to the online teaching & learning environment
  • Have a chance to discuss with other professionals some of the challenges of moving to an online platform
  • Learn how intercultural strategies can be transferred from a f2f to an online environment
  • Learn how  to maintain an intercultural focus (both in learning outcomes and pedagogy) when moving to the online environment
  • Learn strategies to overcome some of the challenges presented by the online learning environment, such as experiential learning, interactive activities, gauging or assessing transformative learning, etc.
