Special course for all JGU and Exchange students. This course is taught in English.

We are keen to welcome students from Mainz and all over the world to participate in this com­prehensive inter­cultural training. In this course you will team up in small groups to reflect on your own cultural back­ground, how it is per­ceived by others, and how you in turn perceive habits shaped by diffe­rent cultures.

In this course you are sensitized to pitfalls lurking when encountering different cul­tures, are en­abled to actively shape your own presence in inter­national contexts and to engage successfully in intercultural situations. The course will take place weekly. In three block sessions taught by Ellen Rana, a professional intercultural trainer and academic from Koblenz University of Applied Sciences, you get an insight into the basic concepts and theories of inter­cul­tu­ral com­muni­cation. You will apply this know­ledge to your own inter­cultural experien­ces through­out the semester by realising a video pro­ject in inter­cul­tu­ral teams. Thus, other sessions will consist of workshops about video production and tutorial sessions with hands-on assignments for the video teams.

Course work:
The course work consists of keeping a learning jour­nal to reflect on your own intercultural ex­periences in Mainz, of teaming up with other Ger­man and international participants to create a short video based on these experien­ces and re­flections, and of finally writing your own critical reflection on the finished videos.

JGU-students: Please register via JOGU-StINe.
