The ability to engage in vigorous academic discussion is not only an intellectual skill. If combined with a mindset of perspective-taking and mindful elicitation of others’ views, it can also be a cultural competence skill. Using the example of a cross-cultural communication course, we describe a set of activities that encourage students of different cultural backgrounds to collaboratively and equally engage in academic discussion. These activities can help inculcate a new classroom culture, train students in skills and knowledge about how to engage in discussion, and provide plenty of practice in small-group discussions with diverse classmates.
