Description: This is a part 1 workshop on Intercultural Communication and Diversity. How do you create a classroom culture that promote a sense of safety, acceptance, and appreciation for all students regardless of gender, ethnicity, political beliefs, race, religion, nationality, learning styles, disability, or sexual orientation? How do you encourage, engage and learn from such intercultural differences and similarities? This workshop will discuss strategies to deal with student’s beliefs, cultures, and perspectives that may differ from your own, as well as how to construct a syllabus that takes into account different learning and communication styles.
