Key Competencies

Course Title: ZFBK01 Interkulturelle Kompetenz

Course Description

In diesem Grundlagen-Workshop arbeiten wir an 4 Synchron-Terminen (inklusive Vorbesprechung) via MS Teams. Zwischen den Videosessions arbeiten Sie an asynchronen Aufgaben, die Sie jeweils am Ende einer Session erhalten und mit der Sie sich auf die nächste Synchronsession vorbereiten.

Wir machen viele interaktive Übungen, Diskussionen und Sie hören kurze Vortragsimpulse zu Interkultureller Kommunikation an der Hochschule.

Der Workshop richtet sich insbesondere an VIP Studierende, die sich auf einen späteren physischen Studienaufenthalt (egal welchen Formates) an der JLU vorbereiten möchten.

Das Ziel des Workshops liegt darin, sich mit Gießener Studierenden über persönliche (interkulturelle) Erfahrungen an der deutschen Hochschule auszutauschen und voneinander zu lernen. Wir arbeiten an konkreten Kommunikationssituationen und beleuchten dabei thematische Aspekte von Wertvorstellungen, Stereotypen, Kultur und Identität.

Eine Teilnahme an allen synchronen und asynchronen Teilen der Lehrveranstaltung ist verpflichtend.

Course Title: ZFBK02 Global Competence: Cross-Cultural Skills for an Interconnected World

Course Description

In many areas of study, cultural sensitivity and adaptability are essential qualities for success – before and after graduation. By increasing self-awareness, global perspective, and cultural intelligence, students open many valuable doors for themselves. In this e-learning course, you will examine the importance of certain skills areas for global competence, and subsequently, focus on cross-cultural communication skills as part of being a globally competent citizen of the 21st century. A particular emphasis will be taken on management (and self-management) in culturally diverse settings such as international teams.

It will provide selected practical strategies and tools to more effectively and appropriately navigate cultural differences, and learn and grow through intercultural learning experiences. We will be utilizing the GlobeSmart Profile©, a statistically validated cultural intelligence software that identifies your personal work style and allows you to compare your results with peers from different cultural backgrounds. You will be able to reflect on how to bridge style differences and leverage similarities, so you can work and study effectively with individuals both locally and abroad.

The course is comprised of five self-study units (e-modules). Each module takes about 1-2 hours to complete.
