Progressive cultural reflection reportIn a critical incident report you are required to describe, analyse, evaluate, and reflect on anintercultural experiencethat has been particularly significant for you. It will help you grow in theskill of cultural reflexivity. Selection of the particular intercultural experience to be analyzed isvery important – it should be specific, current, personal and important. It is not the magnitude ofthe event but the magnitude of the effect that it has had on you and the potential it has to shapeyou which determines whether an event or incident is ‘critical’ for you. Normally, the event orincident you select for this paper will be either a ‘high point’ or a ‘low point’ in your life and/orwork experience (something involving your interaction with another/others). It will be significantenough to stimulate reflection, and substantive enough to connect theory with the experience.Examples of intercultural experiences you could choose:A guest speaker in class who’s story significantly impacted youA shared traditional meal with a person from a different cultureA visit to a cultural siteA developing cross cultural relationship with a college or clientFollow this format to prepare your CIR:1.
