As in the previous seminars (Michaelmas and Lent Term 2019), it will focus on the intercultural understanding needed to study and work successfully within the University environment; it will also focus more widely on aspects of British life and culture, considering any topics (e.g. tourism, history, politics, class, customs) that participants would like to discuss, and drawing where possible on their impressions and experiences. Those who attended the previous seminar are welcome, and all participants are encouraged to email any questions or particular areas of interest in advance to Sheila Dodds (smd48).

Intercultural Communication Workshop led by Kasia Lanucha

Monday, 24th February, 10:00 to 13:00, including a free lunch from noon - please book by Wednesday 12 February for catering purposes

Have you ever struggled with other students’ or colleagues’ styles of communication, wondered why some people seem to use more formal language, or be more direct than others? Culture plays a big part in how we communicate, and adjusting to the cultural communication norms means more than learning a foreign language.

Join our workshop to learn more about the importance of cultural competence in engineering. Find out more about the impact of cultural differences on management styles, team dynamics, communication and more.

This free workshop is mainly aimed at graduate students of engineering at Cambridge University. A group of students from a technical university in Germany will also take part within the scope of an exchange trip. It is followed by a sandwich lunch, during which the workshop contents can be discussed further.
