Webinar: Teaching and Learning Across Cultures

Description:

Some form of teaching is central to most mission work, but how does culture affect the way people learn? This webinar will introduce participants to the five dimensions of how culture influences teaching and learning. Practical examples will illustrate how and when to adapt (or not adapt) teaching to the cultural expectations and preferences of learners in another culture.
