Tools and methods that connect the Intercultural and DEI divide (8 July 2024)

DAD - Expanding the repertoire


   Multiple levels







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 or other learning institutions both at the academic and applied levels. 

Guest faculty
Drs. Michaela Carrière

Why participate
We will explore 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 and activities 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

Participant profile/requirements
This course is for you if are a trainer/multiplier/educator who is

  • newer to practice within the field,
  • ready to “level up” your toolkit, 
  • already familiar with some DEI training practices but not Intercultural communication training practices—or vice versa 

You should already have at least a preliminary understanding of and experience with —either through your own work or participation in 'training for trainers' type programs— training and (adult) learning best practices. 

Contact us if you have questions about the suitability of this course for your circumstances.

Learning outcomes
In this course, you will learn how to help yourself—and those you work with—so that you/they can better:

  • understand and be able to apply facilitation methods that cross the IC-DEI divide—and what types of adjustments are necessary to use in either/both 
  • more effectively use the debriefing portion of IC and DEI training activities (and overcoming potential challenges that can emerge in the debriefing process) in order to help trainees create more impactful meaning out of the experiences you facilitate with them

Upon successful completion of the program, you will receive a Certificate of Participation listing 6 contact learning hours. 

Participant reflections
Here's what past participants have to say about this course:

  • “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.
  • “[Faculty] created a wonderful experiential learning environment that allowed me to rethink some of my beliefs.”
  • “Truly valuable and useful for applied sciences. Research meets education.”

For course additional details see the Institute for Developing Across Differences website.

Help yourself and those you work with:

  • Apply facilitation methods that cross the IC-DEI divide
  • Better use the practice of debriefing in both IC and DEI training activities
