Intercultural Communicative Competence for TESL Instructors

Abstract: 

Alberta Teachers of English as a Second Language (ATESL) and NorQuest College Center for Intercultural Education conducted a research project focused on understanding current practices to integrate intercultural communicative competence (ICC) into ESL instruction, curriculum and professional development in Alberta using the ATESL Adult ESL Curriculum Framework. The research included both full-time and part-time ESL programs in urban and rural centers across Alberta. Results were shared through consultation meetings with ESL stakeholders to generate recommendations for future activities related to the integration of ICC into ESL practices in Alberta.
