Goals of the Course(JPN)
Goals of the Course
|This course aims to integrate knowledge and skills of social psychology as they apply to the field of intercultural communication. By introducing students to intercultural education and training, covering background theories, practical methods, ethics, and evaluation, the course will allow students to get hands on experience in heightening intercultural sensitivity of themselves and others through active group learning, and application of the theories they will learn. As part of human resources development (HRD), intercultural education and training equips personnel with cognitive, affective, and behavioral skills to deal with cross-cultural interaction. We will look at cross-cultural theories that identify difficulty in communication between cultures, and then discuss what content and method would be most effective in training people to deal with such difficulty.|
