Outline of Lecture Course This course aims to introduce students to intercultural education and training, covering background theories, practical methods, ethics, and evaluation. As part of human resources development (HRD), intercultural education and training equips personnel with cognitive, affective, and behavioral skills to deal with cross-cultural interaction. We will look at cross-cultural theories that identify difficulty in communication between cultures, and then discuss what content and method would be most effective in training people to deal with such difficulty.
Course Objectives Students will work in teams to design and apply their own training exercises on each other, and discuss how their methods were effective or not. They will get hand on experience at practicing intercultural training methods, including role plays, simulations, and group discussions, hence this course is practical in nature, and requires full participation. Finally, students will learn how to evaluate and analyze the effects of training program. The goal of the course is to have students personally experience intercultural training, and have them judge for themselves whether they are effective tools for HRD.
