As tertiary education operates within, and prepares students for, an increasingly intercultural world, students and staff need the intercultural skills to thrive. This session asks:
- What do we mean by intercultural competence - and do different subject, institutional and international cultures require the same competencies?
- Can intercultural competence be best developed by targeted training, or by creating an institutional ethos that embraces diversity?
- How can we ensure that intercultural experiences develop intercultural competence?
