John Diaz, University of Florida- Institute of Food & Agricultural Sciences, will present a session on the “Intercultural Development Inventory® (IDI®): Applications for Extension”. John is an IDI Qualified Administrator and will engage us in ways to implement the IDI in our Extension work. Intercultural competence has been identified as a critical capability in several studies including those focused on educational leadership and culturally responsive education. The Intercultural Development Inventory® (IDI®) assesses intercultural competence—the capability to shift cultural perspective and appropriately adapt behavior to cultural differences and commonalities. The IDI has been rigorously tested and has cross-cultural generalizability, both internationally and with domestic diversity. The IDI generates profiles of an individual’s intercultural competence. When used to assess an individual’s level of intercultural competence, a customized Intercultural Development Plan® (IDP®) is also prepared for the person. This IDP provides a detailed blueprint for the individual to further develop intercultural competence.
