The original diversophy® Cultural Competence training tool is now translated into Finnish and transformed into MiniDecks. Each one contains all you need to play a full session of diversophy®.
Cultural Competence Basic: Designed to encourage youngsters and beginners to become aware of and discuss differences among people, putting them in contexts that require empathy and the ability to place themselves in others’ situations.
Cultural Competence Advanced: Gives perspectives on cultural issues in different life situations and work environments. Inspires players to think more diversely and enter and appreciate others’ points of view.
Developed & translated by: Laura Kortelainen
Now a University student in Helsinki, Finland, Laura’s previous multicultural field experience included working in the JAMK United for Refugees (JUfR) project in 2016, where she collaborated in the creation of the diversophy® New Horizons game and provided its translation into the Finnish language. Employed as an intern for George Simons International in the summer 2016, she broadened her range of experience with intercultural gamification and contributed to the organization’s online resources for learning about gaming and for marketing of intercultural learning instruments. Continuing her work in the multicultural field, Laura has now translated the game diversophy® Cultural Competence into Finnish and selected critical material for two separate minidecks. Both minidecks aim to increase players’ multicultural understanding by giving Finnish players as diverse a set of card contents as possible. To allow the game to serve various ages and levels of development, game materials are divided into Basic and Advanced.
