Intercultural Communication Competency: Mini-Workshop

Dr. Eric Aoki, Communication Studies, will set up a foundation of concepts around Intercultural Communication Competency (ICC) building and then facilitate two brief engagement activities with the workshop attendees. We will cover such ICC phenomena as embodied ethnocentrism v. ethnocentrism, antecedents to intercultural contact, learning from intercultural dialectical tensions and communication accommodation theory as well as working through four analogies for culture and how our preferred values can inform our (inter)cultural notions of “work” and working together. This workshop counts toward the TILT Graduate Teaching Certificate. This session aligns with the Classroom Climate and Inclusive Pedagogy domains of the Teaching Effectiveness Framework.
