Pre-conference workshop Train-the-Trainers on UNESCO Story Circles by Darla Deardorff (Duke University)


On Thursday December 2, 15:00-17:00 (CET) Dr. Darla Deardorff will deliver an online workshop on Story Circles. ''Story Circles'' is a structured yet flexible methodology for developing intercultural competences in both formal and informal contexts. The methodology was designed to enhance the skills, attitudes, and behaviours of individuals to engage in meaningful and transformative intercultural dialogue. 

Join this Train-the-Trainers UNESCO Story Circles event to experience UNESCO Story Circles. Following participation in Story Circles, participants will be able to have a debrief on facilitating Story Circles. This methodology is available through an open access manual in 5 languages, authored by Darla Deardorff, and has been piloted successfully online and in all 5 UNESCO regions around the world.

This workshop is a pre-conference event of the international online conference Developing intercultural competences in online and physical learning environments on Friday December 3. This conference takes place in the scope of the Comenius Senior Fellow project 'Encounters in the Field: a playful approach to the development of intercultural competences'. The aim of the project is to develop the intercultural competences of MSc students who are doing fieldwork in the global South. It is funded by the Netherlands Initiative for Education Research (NRO/NWO).
