CLIC: Inter-Communication: Culture Shock

Wed 19 Oct 2022


Most students and researchers will experience culture shock in some form or other when living abroad or even when working in their home country. It can happen at any moment whilst interacting across cultures in person or remotely. Whilst a very good command of a language helps, it does not guarantee a smooth cultural experience. Indeed, there is more to communication than simply speaking the same language. Culture shock does not have to be a negative experience if you are prepared and know how to handle it.

In this workshop, you will gain a better understanding of the Bennett scale (also known as the "Developmental Model of Intercultural Sensitivity"), which will help you to analyse your experiences and prepare you to deal with culture shock effectively. This workshop is open to both native and non-native speakers.

This is not a webinar. This is an interactive workshop and you will be expected to contribute to the session.

You must have your webcam switched on.

Target audience

This workshop is aimed towards participants in the field of Engineering.
