Past Common Hour Events

Explore: Navigating Intercultural Communication at UTM

With such a diverse population, intercultural interactions occur on a daily basis at UTM. While we are all members of the same community, we cannot leave our cultural backgrounds at the door, and we may not always be prepared for the differences we encounter. Communication styles, which are closely linked to cultural values, influence our behaviors, expectations, and interactions in (and beyond) the classroom. Navigating this intercultural framework is the first step in success. Join us for this interactive workshop as we investigate differences in communication styles and work through scenarios that help to make sense of cross-cultural misunderstandings.
