What is the content of the 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 necessary?
Intercultural competence - What does that really mean? Do misunderstandings emerge due to interculturality and how can I avoid them? How can I interact with people from 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 find unexpected solutions. A great possibility not only to get soft skills at University, but also to get a great base for your personal life.
In order to complete the project successfully, every student needs to participate in three events. All events are free of charge! First you'll need to register for the workshop and then you'll receive an email about how and when to sign up for the events.
The events for the summer semester 2022 are currently still being planned and the final event program will be available here at the end of April.
