To complete the project successfully, every student needs to participate in three events. All events are free of charge! After the registration for the workshops, the students should send an e-mail to interkulturelles@stwm.de to register for the events, precising the events they want to participate in. We are currently planning the upcoming semester. The events are initially planned as live events (i.e. excursions, bouldering, etc.), but must be switched to online events if the COVID-19 situation requires it. The events below are from the previous semester and will be updated over the next few weeks.

Content of Workshops

  • Culture - What is that?
  • Intercultural Communication - is that possible?
  • Perception and Values - does it belong together?
  • Intercultural Conflict Management - sounds difficult...
  • Stereotype and prejudice - are they really useful?

Intercultural competence - What does that really mean? Are there misunderstandings based on interculturality and how can I avoid them? How can I interact with people from very different cultures without upsetting them and without acting in an artificial way at the same time?

During the intercultural workshops we will find answers for all those questions. By teamwork, discussions, examples and simulations, we will have a constant change of perspective and get unexpected solutions. A great possibility not only to get Softskills at University, but also to get a great base for your personal life.
