Digital Cross-Cultural Training

This semester, the „International Management Solutions“-seminar will deal with digital cross-cultural training tools, which can be used to improve the trainees’ affective, cognitive, and behavioral intercultural competencies. Cross-cultural training programs have already been developed and applied as intercultural preparation for almost five decades today. However, only recently electronic cross-cultural training programs are gaining popularity in academia and practice. Digital cross-cultural training programs offer various advantages such as independence of a specific time and space as well as the possibility to include a variety of teaching approaches, such as videos, simulations, texts or audio files.The aim of the seminar will be to design helpful and enjoyable cross-cultural training programs that are implemented digitally. The students will be developing their own cross-cultural training tools in small working groups. The seminar requires knowledge about cultural concepts and potential intercultural conflicts. Moreover, creativity and innovative capacity are important abilities requested from the participants.
