Vzdělávací cíle programu/kurzu
This hands-on professional development training, comprising six 180-minute online sessions and one day-long retreat, has been designed specifically for the international relations office staff to become well-equipped professionals with intercultural competences, communication skills to serve as key players of internationalization and international partnerships at their institutions. To achieve this we will approach the role of the international relations staff from two perspectives: as professionals providing high-quality services in international education and as individuals who need to understand their own reactions and find creative solutions when faced with intercultural challenges.
The training sessions will provide participants with practical intercultural communication tools and insights to enhance their work with international and domestic students, academics, management, and external partners. We will explore essential aspects that affect communication in international contexts, including ethnocentrism, stereotyping and prejudice, and the role of culture in our perception and correspondingly in verbal and non-verbal communication. This will help us increase self-awareness and understanding of our own cultural contexts as a starting point for an effective management of the challenges of intercultural communication. All presented concepts will be applied to real-life situations, inviting participants' reflection of their own experiences and helping them enhance intercultural skills through effective tools and strategies.
