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.

Check out this webinar from Dr. Darla Deardorff 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. 

Darla Deardorff works with UNESCO to come up with a methodology that helps foster intercultural connections between people. Listen as she describes Story Circles, its conception, and how it’s being used to help people better understand one another.
