Webinar:  Intercultural Competence and Student Development: Working Toward a Fuller Picture of Global Learning

Date & Time: September 24, 1:00 p.m.-2:30 p.m.
Webinar Viewing Location: Augsburg Room, Christensen Center

Kick off the new academic year with this stimulating conversation that taps into NAFSA’s growing community of practice focused on global learning.

Several instruments are designed to help locate college students on intercultural scales and measure changes in their perspectives over time. What does the data from these techniques reveal – and not – about students and their intercultural competence?

Jointly sponsored by Augsburg’s Office of International Programs, General Education, and CTL.

RACE WORKSHOP WITH PENUMBRA THEATRE

October 7, 3:40-5:40 p.m. Foss Studio

Jointly Sponsored by Academic Affairs and the Center for Teaching and Learning 

Faculty and Staff – You are invited to participate in Penumbra Theatre Company’s RACE Workshop. As part of Augsburg’s commitment to being a welcoming place for all, this workshop is designed to continue the work of the Diversity and Inclusion Committee as well as build upon the momentum generated through the Creating an Inclusive Campus Conference. During this two-hour session, you will participate in a variety of activities that facilitate the exploration of your identity and the examination how your sense of self affects your perception of others. Monologues by Penumbra’s performance artists will help us hone in on the things that nurture or hinder human connection. By participating in this workshop, we hope to give you some tools to foster a deeper connection with students by first giving you the space to deeply connect with your own self. 

Space is limited for this event so please RSVP to ctl@augsburg.edu.

WISE is the premier conference focused on the development of intercultural skills and awareness during study abroad and international travel. WISE is a practitioner’s conference focused on helping faculty leaders, program coordinators, and resident staff develop the knowledge and skills they need in order to help study abroad students develop intercultural skills and awareness.

WISE is designed for faculty who lead or teach short- or long-term programs abroad, and for study abroad professionals who assist students in this important cross-cultural experience. It is a place where faculty, study abroad professionals, and other international education and assessment experts can share insights, strategies and personal experiences about intercultural competency in practical, hands-on sessions.
