What are some good resources on cultures or customs of our international partners and colleagues?
In our work, we are often partnering with colleagues from around the world, training guest teachers, or leading delegations from abroad when they visit our state. This is especially true for those of us who are responsible for international or global education initiatives along with world language education. We are also called upon to provide information to others about how to work in a culturally appropriate manner in these situations, and sometimes that information is needed quite quickly.
Please share your go-to resources about how to interact with cultural competence and understanding. Websites, books, information sheets, videos, etc. are all welcome. You may also want to share resources about how our culture and customs are viewed!
