The workshops last three hours each. Participation in 4 workshops plus a reflection paper can be credited with 2-3 ECTS, depending on the department. (Since, for example, only 3 workshops of the short series took place in the winter semester 20/21, this would have to be planned across semesters).

Language: Please note that some of the three hour workshops take place in English and others in German!

 

The topics in summer semester 2021 are:

„Wir verstehen uns (nicht?)“ - Verbale Kommunikation im interkulturellen Kontext (DE, mit der externen Trainerin Nicole Späth)

Rassismus im Alltag Teil 2 - struktureller und institutioneller Rassimus (DE, mit der externen Trainerin Lina Chihabi)

Discussing Cultural Differences – Influence Factor Personality (EN, With Carmen Muntel)

Common Ground in International Teams (EN, with Nicole Späth)

The topics in winter semester 2021/22 will be announced in due time.
