Acquiring intercultural competence is challenging. Although intelligent learning environments developed to enhance cultural learning can be effective, there is limited evidence regarding how best to dynamically manipulate these environments in support of learning. Further, the space of potential manipulations is extremely large and sometimes tangled with the implementation details of particular learning systems in particular domains. This paper offers a framework for organizing approaches to such dynamic tailoring of the learning experience. The framework is hypothesized to be useful as a general tool for the community to organize and present alternative approaches to tailoring. To highlight the use of the framework, we examine one potential tailoring option in detail in the context of an existing simulation for learning intercultural competence.
