What is cultural competence? How can developing cultural competence help advance research and practice? If you are interested in learning more, please view this recording of a brief 30-minute demonstration webinar. Members of the CONVERGE team provided a demonstration of the CONVERGE Cultural Competence in Hazards and Disaster Research Training Module. If you are an educator, student, researcher, practitioner, or other professional hoping to learn more about this free, online resource, we hope you will watch the demonstration video!
The webinar offered an overview of the broader vision for the CONVERGE Training Modules, as well as features specific tips for how you can integrate the Cultural Competence module into your classroom, workplace, and future presentations. In addition, it showed how the module functions and the resources associated with it. This session also highlighted the CONVERGE Training Module Assignment Bank for educators!
