Session 01: Intercultural communication, the basics

EduBox 02 – Session 01

Intercultural communication, the basics

Any intercultural communication, no matter whether business related or otherwise, can be subject to erroneous interpretations and misunderstandings. Viewing communication as a process, and highlighting the variables that influence the outcome of this process is thus the first step towards communicating effectively and dealing with the complexity of social interactions.
By introducing a dynamic model of intercultural communication, the purpose of this session is to equip students with a tool for analysing intercultural communication processes that considers multiple variables.
