Review of online training ‘7 keys’

In November and December 2023, the online training ‘7 keys for intercultural community building’ was given by Hans, Michele and Patrick (ICP core team members). In seven evenings, seven keys were discussed that are important to open closed doors that we sometimes encounter when working with interculturality and community building. What wealth we have in God’s Word, in each other, in experiences and lessons learned in practice.

Read here what participants experienced. What is their feedback on the training? What insights were important to them?

Some reactions from participants

Easily accessible, available online. Being able to exchange many practical experiences.

Put the shoe on the other foot. Think out of your comfort zone.

Very informative, good to look back later and delve deeper into the topics. The different practical experience of others is very helpful.

Even as a seasoned worker there are always new things to learn. If you are new to this kind of work there is a need to be aware of these things or become aware of them.

It is valuable to take this course to discover interculturality in all its diversity. Especially for those who have not experienced or experienced much. On the other hand, you also learn how unique every person is, regardless of which country they come from.

Our ICP team member Patrick participated in the training and also taught two of the seven online lessons. This is what he said afterwards about his experience with the training:
The seven keys course provides new insights that are important in an intercultural context. You learn by sharing with each other and trying to apply the keys provided in your daily life. Recommended for people who also want to make the transition from mono to multi (inter)cultural.

We have plans for training in the coming season. We hope to make the online training available via our Online Training Platform, which is already used by the students of two-year Team Training. We also want to publish a booklet in which the keys are described and explained. Keep an eye on our website and social media for more information about this.
