Two keys to successful intercultural training are to be authentic and interactive. Materials need to be based on real life experience and relevant to your target group. A high level of interactivity ensures that, whether you are working online or face-to-face, the participants are fully engaged in their learning.
In this interactive presentation we will look at a range of activities including reflection exercises, critical incidents, cases studies and role play. As well as activities suitable for webinars and seminars we will also discuss ways of developing intercultural competence beyond formal training.
