Dear Media Technology 1st year students,

on behalf of Annemart Berendse I would like to invite you all to participate at the International Social Skills lab.

What is it about:
Working together in an international environment, being it a project group or your own class, demands knowledge and social skills that surpass the regular social interaction among peers. Nothing is what it appears to be!
Ever noticed that your English is perfect, and you still couldn’t understand the joke of your Indian class mate? And why is this Chinese woman pointing to her nose? How does your brain trick you in to misunderstandings and wrong interpretations?
After this 4 hour International Social Skills Lab you will recognize the pitfalls of intercultural cooperation and learn the basics to stand your ground in an international environment.
Do not expect a regular class of listening and note taking. Your active involvement in fun and practice is appreciated!

When: Thursday May 3 at 11.00-15.30
Where: room 413, Snellius buidling
