Intercultural Competence (online course)

This online course is aimed at individuals who want to enhance their intercultural competence: their capacity to respond to (cultural) differences constructively, effectively and appropriately. Most people nowadays need to carry out their work in a context of high cultural diversity. Due to migration, internationalization and globalization, people in virtually all sectors are faced with highly diverse contexts.

Often, this entails contacts with people from a variety of national or ethnic backgrounds, in diverse environments and changing settings. Mere information about different places and groups and associated ‘do’s and don’t’s’ are no longer helpful (if they ever were), and perhaps even counterproductive.

The course takes place fully online, so that in principle anyone, anywhere can on the basis of open registration.
