Title of speech: Intercultural Experiential Learning Through Community Collaboration and Development
Gist: How to facilitate intercultural communication and experiential learning in an international context? What values would collaborations bring to the local and international community? How the intercultural context has been formed through communication and collaborations among university, industry and local and international community? Dr. Du draws upon her experiences working as program head of a Master program at university, discussing the possibilities to facilitate intercultural experiential learning through university, industry and community collaborations. As a researcher funded by the Asia Pacific Foundation, and Germany DAAD Yong- Academic funds, she will discuss and share experiences working on several community projects including a Canadian-Chinese bilingual project collaborating with BC local museum and cultural organizations, and an international project of intercultural field school involving Chinese government, the universities, cultural ethnic groups, international students and researchers. She is also open to ideas and invites input on a newly initiated international community collaboration.
