Simon Fraser University is a hyper-diverse community where students from multicultural and multilingual backgrounds are brought together on Coast Salish territories. Students are able to experience internationalization at home, but many lack the intercultural skills to make the community inclusive. This presentation will share the needs assessment, theoretical frameworks and collaborative relationships that helped develop a new online, co-curricular course that addresses reconciliation within theories and practices of intercultural development. The course is designed to keep students engaged through use of visually based material such as videos and infographics. Evidence-based impact assessments will also be shared.
