Welcome to our Interculturalization At BCIT Research Guide! Please look through the links, videos, resources and research related to intercultural teaching and learning topics. Our classes are increasingly diverse as a result of more interactions between our growing populations of international, indigenous, newcomer, and heritage culture domestic students. The collection of resources within this research guide will continue to grow so that BCIT instructors have greater access to tools they can use to innovate how they create learning and supports for all of our students.
Intercultural at BCIT Event
May 22, 2019
SE2 Student Association Council Chambers
Guest Speaker: Heather Williams (SFU)
Be the Change: An Example of Intercultural Engagement at SFU
The landscape of post-secondary education has shifted dynamically in the past decade with increased internationalization efforts and the Truth and Reconciliation Commissions Calls to Action. Simon Fraser University is embracing this change by offering intercultural professional development opportunities to both students and staff that weave in elements of reconciliation. This interactive session will give you an understanding of how to engage and leverage the increasing diversity within a post-secondary setting by sharing some of the curriculum and related impact assessments. In addition to understanding theoretical models used to guide the design, you will be invited to experience some intercultural strategies through small group activities and open dialogue, providing the opportunity to see the value of working on your own intercultural skills. You will leave this session with a better understanding of some models and tools to help you in your own work with diverse colleagues, students and stakeholders.
Refreshments will be provided.
