FLO (Facilitating Learning Online) is a growing collection of 1 to 5 week online courses designed to enhance skills required to confidently and effectively facilitate learning online. 

FLO MicroCourse: Intercultural Communication 1,1,1,1


In the intercultural communication field, direct experience is recognized as the most effective way to develop supportive attitudes, skills, and knowledge by exposing participants to their own and others' affective responses, as well as alternative perspectives. While culture is dynamic, with great diversity within, as well as between, cultures, focused exploration of even a single aspect of communication can build a strong foundation for insight into a variety of cultural patterns.   

In this 1-week course, we will explore 1 intercultural communication concept through an experiential learning approach that includes 1 reading and 1 assignment.  

This foundation course will help you enhance skills needed to confidently and effectively design online learning activities.

Facilitators: Gina Bennett and Asif Devji
