  • Some Thoughts on Assessing Intercultural Competence

Comments Dec 5, 2015 1:23 pm

I agree. ICC assessment needs to have multi-method and multi-perspectives. People may be strong in some intercultural communications and behaviors, but may lack of competence in others. ICC assessment is hard, but ICC development is harder. It involves teachers to be competent with various educational backgrounds such as teaching and learning, counselling, and psychology. As we aim to build our students to become a global citizen, we, as teachers, should be strict and even harsh to ourselves first to increase our capability for educating next generations.
