Universities - training, workshops and lectures

I facilitate the optimal facilitation of everyday intercultural interactions.

Ensuring the effective management of intercultural interactions within higher education institutions is critical to cultivating an inclusive and diverse learning environment. This achievement hinges upon a synergistic approach involving training, the promotion of active engagement, and the profound respect for cultural disparities. Such an environment not only empowers students to collaborate and communicate effectively but also contributes to the enrichment of a multifaceted and all-encompassing academic community.

Our role involves nurturing communication and collaboration among students from diverse cultural backgrounds. This is realized through shared activities, events, intercultural workshops, and training sessions aimed at cultivating cultural sensitivity. The overarching goal is to establish connections that bridge gaps and dispel preconceived notions, while fostering a climate of receptiveness and curiosity towards cultural distinctions.

I offer assistance in addressing the distinctive needs of international students.

Leverage my proficiency to discern and tend to the unique requirements and perspectives of students originating from various cultural contexts. Achieving this may encompass initiatives such as furnishing translation services or providing intercultural counseling offerings.

I ensure effective and culturally sensitive expectation management.

To create a positive learning environment for international students in higher education, effective and culturally sensitive expectation management is crucial. This includes providing clear and accurate information about course objectives, requirements, teaching methods and evaluation criteria, as well as considering and understanding cultural differences when designing curricula and assessing performance. In my experience, all this contributes to students feeling comfortable and respected. I therefore support you in creating an open learning environment, free from discrimination and intolerance, where students can freely express their opinions and perspectives. Recognise students' individual needs and challenges.

I offer my support in navigating intricate intercultural scenarios and encounters.

Intercultural situations at universities can sometimes be challenging. It is important to perceive cultural differences and understand that each culture has its own perspective, values, and behaviours. Communicating openly and honestly in challenging intercultural situations, listening actively, and showing empathy for the situations and feelings of others helps to avoid misunderstandings and find solutions. If the situation cannot be resolved, it is important to use professional mediation to reach a solution. With our expertise we support you in all these situations.

I support you in researching the culture and business practices of the partner country to gain an understanding of the cultural differences and business practices of the partner country and to avoid misunderstandings. As intercultural consultant and expert, I identify challenges and find solutions, define clear rules and expectations for the partnership. With my training in intercultural communication, you are well prepared for trips to the partner country. Use my network and resources to make contacts and exchange ideas with others who have already successfully established intercultural partnerships.
