Episode 129: Case Study Episode: Supporting Faculty in Facilitating Intercultural Learning Experiences with Dr. Tara Harvey and Neil Ward
In episode 129 of the Lecture Breakers podcast, Dr. Tara Harvey and Neil Ward join us to talk about intercultural learning.
This is a case study episode, but it’s a little different than previous case studies. This time, instead of digging into one specific class, we’re going to take a deeper look at a faculty development program and hear from a professor who completed the program and has been transforming the way he works with students.
Dr. Tara Harvey is the founder of True North Intercultural. Tara has been a guest on the show on episodes 12 and 117. And Neil Ward is an associate professor in graphic design. He shares how his experience in Tara’s program helped him learn more about himself and has transformed the way he connects with his students.
As a faculty development professional, I’m always looking for creative ways to support faculty and I like to hear from others who are doing the same type of work. I thought it would be helpful for those of you who are responsible for creating faculty development programs on your campuses. I hope this episode will give you insight into how an online cohort-based faculty development program can work.
And, for those of you who are faculty members who participate in professional development programs, I hope this episode will help you reflect on your own learning experiences and highlight the importance of intercultural learning so you can create successful learning experiences for your students.
