Work Integrated Learning EDI Team offers free Effective Intercultural Communication course - Work Integrated Learning, September 20, 2021
The EDI Team in Work-Integrated Learning offers the online learning opportunity Effective Intercultural Communication to all current SFU students free of charge and for co-curricular credit. The course is designed to support students’ intercultural development and capacities to engage across difference. The next free course offering will begin September 20, 2021. EIC has been shared through a letter of understanding with 15 other universities and colleges across Canada. An employee-facing version of the course, Foundations of Intercultural Development (FID), also explicitly focuses on intercultural development from the lens of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion. The FID curriculum has been offered out nationally and internationally through partnerships with the Canadian Bureau for International Education (CBIE) (2019 -ongoing) and Colleges Institutes Canada (2020).
