ALL CAREER LEVELS COURSE
Expanding the Repertoire
Methods that cross and connect the IC DEI divide
This one-day workshop will help you expand and enhance the set of experiential activities you use for intercultural- and/or diversity-focused trainings — whether you work with professional or educational audiences in corporations, NGOs, government agencies and/or other learning institutions, at both the academic and applied levels.
We will explore interactive exercises, simulations and facilitation techniques you can add or hone within your own trainer toolbox. Special attention will be given to:
- Applying and adjusting new pedagogical approaches, activities and tools that appropriate in multiple Differences training contexts
- Understanding how ‘tried-and-true’ methods or pedagogical activities/elements you may already use can be enhanced and adapted to be effective for different strands of work within the Differences field

“[Faculty] created a wonderful experiential learning environment that allowed me to rethink some of my beliefs.”
“It’s been such a rich learning experience. It has far exceeded my expectations: as we were not only able to explore the different methods/exercises but also dive into the background and the philosophy behind them.”
“Michaela is extremely knowledgeable. She is incredibly generous and inclusive in how she shares the tools, gives feedback and facilitates.
“Truly valuable and useful for applied sciences.
Research meets education.”
