Registration recently got underway for intercultural communication workshops at the University of Massachusetts Center at Springfield.

The one- and three-day workshops, scheduled for March 14-17, are being presented by the Intercultural Communication Institute, a nonprofit based in Portland, Oregon. The organization's mission is to create an environment of awareness as well as appreciation for cultural differences, whether domestic or international in scope.

UMass Amherst's Institute for Teaching Excellence and Faculty Development is co-sponsoring the event.

UMass Amherst staff, faculty and students can attend the three-day workshop at the discounted price of $600 or the one-day session for $220. The registration promotional code is UMASSFAM, which must be used by Feb. 10.

Workshop topics include intercultural learning away from home, classroom management of intercultural development styles, diversity as a strategic change process, and ways to use games, both professionally and creatively, to build teams of people and communities.
