Cultural Awareness Revisited: Updating for the 21st Century - hancockmcdonald.com/talks/cultural-awareness-revisited-updating-21st-century

Cultural awareness seems to be making a re-appearance in the language teaching and learning literature. In this workshop we will focus on the ‘new look’ cultural awareness – intercultural competence (ICC). We will situate its growing importance and discuss what it entails. We will also take a look at a selection of classroom materials and briefly consider assessment of ICC.
