Assessing and Developing Intercultural Competence

March 23, 2021 | 3:00pm to 4:00pm

Cindy Jiang (OIA), Janice M. Aski (French and Italian), April Weintritt (French and Italian)

In this webinar, we will report on a longitudinal study on the development of Intercultural Competence (ICC) in students enrolled in the elementary Italian language sequence (IT1101-1103). We will begin by describing how the training interventions were incorporated into each course, what the interventions, the in-class debriefing discussions, and the post-intervention reflections looked like, as well as how students were tested on this work.

This will be followed by a presentation on how instructors responded to the reflections and the exam responses and a brief discussion on how instructor training on inclusive teaching will help instructors manage these delicate interactions.

Finally, we will report on how data for the longitudinal study was collected and assessed and the results of this study in terms of the impact of the ICC interventions on students’ ICC development.
