Information about Coronavirus
Intercultural competence is regarded as one of the central soft skills in the 21st century and its value on the job market and as a plus during international projects is nowadays very high. How do different communication models influence your way of learning and collaborate during your studies and within an multicultural team? Are you firmly convinced that “yes” always means “yes”? What distance between you and your co-students is appropriate? This “teaser talk” about “Intercultural Competence in Academia” focuses on specific traits of learning in an intercultural environment and addresses differences of communication styles between students, researchers and academic staff using interactive exercises. Depending on your interest and questions, topics such as intercultural management and working in intercultural teams could also be covered. Hints for developing intercultural sensitiveness and your own intercultural strategies whilst researching and working abroad will be given.
Please register in advance:
