After the Break

Globally-Distributed Team Discussions

Technology. Using different ICTs (blogging, video conferencing, wikis, etc.) for cross-cultural exchanges, room design and limitations of technology, how to balance between real-time and timelag communications. Best practices for mobile collaboration and digital writing in a global context.

Pedagogy. Focus on globally distributed teams, how you need to prepare students, developing effective lesson plans and class activities to engage students in cross-cultural dialogues, how to accommodate the language barrier, what kind of debrief is necessary, how to create bonding, etc.

Intercultural Theory and Evaluation. How to develop intercultural competencies, the debate between cultural immersion and communication strategies, limitations for global community based on geography or language. Discussion of assessment and research measures, how to bring in diverse groups (Asia, Europe, Africa).

Rhetoric. How to teach rigorous rhetorical theory when looking at popular and cross-cultural texts, what are the different traditions of rhetoric (eastern/western), balancing traditional rhetorical instruction with hands-on learning.
