Communicating across cultures
Intercultural Communication focuses on the importance of culture in our everyday lives, and the ways in which culture interrelates with and effects communication processes. We live in an era of rapid globalization in which being able to communicate across cultures is imperative to our ability to function in a diverse workplace, city, and world. This course will take us on a journey. Using our stories and our classroom discussions, this course is designed to increase our sensitivity to other cultures. Just as importantly, this journey increases our awareness of our own cultural backgrounds, and the contexts (social, cultural and historical) in which we live and communicate.
The specific course objectives are as follows:
To explore cultural self-awareness, other culture awareness, and the dynamics that arise in interactions between the two.
To understand how communication processes differ among cultures.
To identify challenges that arise from these differences in intercultural interactions and learn ways to creatively address them.
To discover the importance of the roles of context and power in studying intercultural communication.
To acquire knowledge, skills and attitudes that increase intercultural competence.
Methoden: Diskussionen, Spiele, Fallbeispiele, kreative Aufgaben.
