IAIR Conference in New York in June - and ICC Global meeting!

Hello everyone! I'm curious as to who will be attending the IAIR Conference in New York in June... there will be an ICC Symposium there led by Lily Arasaratnam-Smith and myself, with presenters being some of the contributors to the forthcoming book "Intercultural Competence in Higher Education: International Approaches, Application, and Assessment" (Routledge, 2017). I think it would be really good if we can arrange an ICC Global meeting there.

"Applying Research to Improve Intercultural Relations"

June 25 through 29, 2017

ICC and Critical Pedagogy

Dear all,

I hope you are having a lovely week so far!

I am working on a creating a curriculum for a pre/post/study abroad program with a focus on ICC development using critical pedagogy and I was wondering if any of you had ran across a similar curriculum.

Thank you in advance!

Hello everyone,

My name is Emmanuelle Chiocca and I am a PhD student in Instructional Leadership and Academic Curriculum at the University of Oklahoma. I am originally from France but have been living in the US for about four years now.

After earning a BA in history and an MA in Contemporary History with a focus on Native American History, as well as a BA in English, I finally discovered a passion for education, and more specifically its international and intercultural aspects.

David Smith - Introducing myself to the ICC Global Community

Good morning to all in the ICC Global community. My name is David and I am a new student of global competence and intercultural competence but a long-term practitioner in many of its aspects.

I am originally from the UK (London) but have spent the last 20 years living and working in mainland Europe. This has included long-term residence in Slovenia, Bulgaria, Macedonia and Albania (where I am currently based). As a student of modern languages in the 1980s, I also spent 18 months living in France at that time.
