Video is generally seen as a passive, primarily didactic teaching method; an approach at odds with contemporary cross-cultural training which tends to emphasize highly interactive experiential methods. In this chapter we draw on contemporary theories of learning to argue that video-based cross-cultural training is, in fact, more flexible than it is given credit for, and can play an important role in developing learners cultural intelligence. In doing this, we outline several practical and creative ways in which video can be used to develop cultural intelligence.
