Developing Intercultural Competences through a UNESCO Story Circles methodology
Talk by executive director of the Association of International Education Administrators Darla K. Deardorff (Duke University) in the Digital series of talks on plurilingualism and interculturality.
How can intercultural competences be developed? Join in this webinar to learn more about a highly successful intercultural methodology called Story Circles that has been piloted in all five UNESCO regions around the world as well as in the virtual environment. UNESCO Story Circles works with any group of people in a wide variety of settings using little to no resources. This structured yet adaptable intercultural methodology is used to practice key intercultural competencies such as listening for understanding. Learn more about this methodology as you think about how you could use this in your own contexts.
