Training trainers refers to preparing individuals to facilitate others’ intercultural awareness and competency development, as well as preparing individuals to design programs, courses, and workshops that lead to such development. A long-held fundamental assumption in the intercultural field is that understanding and appreciating cultural differences, let alone knowing how to be a bridge between differences, does not come naturally. As a result, there has been significant emphasis on how individuals can be more proficient in developing intercultural competence and how best to prepare instructors to lead such educational endeavors. This entry provides a brief history of intercultural training and summarizes six foundations of training for trainers: (1) audience analysis, (2) learning outcomes, (3) sequencing, (4) experiential learning, (5) debriefing, and (6) the art of facilitation.
