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.
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.
