Participants explore their own cultural identity and learn to improve their interactions with other cultures. 45 steps create an informative, interesting, practical, and fun learning experience. The design includes detailed methods for using the Passport, as well as the administration, scoring, profiling, and interpretation of the CCAI. This detailed and step-by-step guide for planning and delivering a powerful learning experience give you everything needed to facilitate a full day workshop.
