Welcome to the SAGE companion site for The Intercultural Communication PlaybookFirst Edition!

Featuring a three-pronged approach encompassing culture, communication, and creative problem solving, The Intercultural Communication Playbook, with its unique, user-friendly layout and presentation, highlights how active, imaginative, and productive problem-solving methods can transform the way students understand intercultural communication. This framework from authors Teri Kwal Gamble, Michael W. Gamble, and Xiaowen Guan guides learners to understand their intercultural identity, broaden their worldview, and successfully improve their communication in real-world settings. Each chapter features exercises that encourage students to diversify their everyday thinking, individually examine their personal preferences, eliminate mental barriers, and discover innovative solutions to intercultural communication challenges.

This site features an array of free resources you can access anytime, anywhere.
