This talk will discuss how insights from brain and mind sciences can inform intercultural education and training. We will explore key concepts, such as the intuitive mind, embodied cognition and deep culture learning. We will learn about four levels of deep culture learning as described by dynamic skill theory. We will discuss how these ideas can be applied, and sample materials will be shared.
