Intercultural cooperation skills in academia

  • 25 - 27 October 2023
  • 10:00 - 17:00
  • Wageningen University and Research campus
  • 0.7 ECTS
During your career, including the current context, you will interact with people from culturally diverse backgrounds. In academic contexts, these could include supervisors, colleagues, students and other stakeholders with cultural backgrounds different from your own. This cultural diversity should enrich your views and experiences, but it could sometimes lead to challenges; Is a yes really a yes? Is a deadline strict? Can you be sure that an agreement has been reached and that everyone is committed to it?
This course (2 workshops) will create an awareness and understanding of intercultural aspects, and the impact of your own unconscious cultural perceptions and unwritten rules with actions alongside expectations by other cultures.
The course will be focused on real-life experiences of intercultural situations in academia, all aiming to enable you successfully collaborate more efficiently, in addition to  benefiting from diversely cultural contexts.
