Maha Bali talks about intercultural learning on episode 124 of the Teaching in Higher Ed podcast.
Quotes from the episode
By spending a lot of time with people who are different than yourself, you get to know yourself even better.
When you leave your culture and go to live somewhere else it helps you question your values, what you take for granted, and your assumptions.
You need deep, sustained interaction with a person or a group of people to be able to understand their culture.
