Seventh International Conference on the
Development and Assessment of Intercultural Competence
January 23-26, 2020
Tucson, Arizona, and Online

Keynote Presentation: Adriana Diaz (University of Queensland – Australia)

Plenary Presentation: Sharon Stein (University of British Columbia – Canada)
Plenary Presentation: Marianne Larsen (Western University – Canada)

Intercultural competence is [the ability] “to see relationships between different cultures – both internal and external to a society – and to mediate, that is interpret each in terms of the other, either for themselves or for other people.” It also encompasses the ability to critically or analytically understand that one’s “own and other cultures’” perspective is culturally determined rather than natural. – Byram, M.

Featuring experts in Intercultural Competence from across the U.S. and internationally, the Intercultural Competence Conference is for K-16 educators and students in fields related to Foreign Languages, Social Sciences/Studies and the Humanities, and for others involved in government, NGOs, and the private sector who are interested in seeing and interpreting relationships between cultures. This biennial event brings together researchers and practitioners across languages, levels, and settings to discuss and share research, theory, and best practices, and to foster meaningful professional dialog on issues related to the development and assessment of Intercultural Competence, especially in a foreign or second language.

Hosted by the Center for Educational Resources in Culture, Language and Literacy (CERCLL) at the University of Arizona, the 2020 ICC conference will take stock of current models for internationalizing curricula as well as the genealogies of these discussions. The organizers are interested in accounts of best practices as well as critical examinations of current trends and conceptual think pieces around what it might mean to internationalize higher education.
