The session will provide an in-depth look at the creative and innovative approaches of achieving internationalization in the post-secondary institutions of rural and remote communities in Northern British Columbia. Dawson Creek and Terrace, where Northern Lights College and Northwest Community College are located, have similar demographics, climates and challenges of implementing intercultural strategies. The presenters will address the gaps in intercultural knowledge in both of the institutions and their communities. They will share their experience and present the approaches they have adopted for a shift that leads to intercultural awareness and intercultural competence. Meanwhile, this session will, through discussion, explore possibilities of increasing internationalization within the communities and institutions.
