Padova-Poznan: Task 1

Purpose: The aim of this week’s task is to start reflecting on your own intercultural competence at this point. There's a bit of reading this time, but I promise you will have less homework this semester!


1 – Go to the Culture page on the wiki we’ll be using. See what your colleagues last year had to say about culture by taking a look at the page.

2 – As is mentioned in this page, one way to assess Intercultural Competence is by using a self-assessment form called the YOGA form. Download this ( .pdf and read about the rationale behind the YOGA form.

3 – Print the YOGA form and fill it out for yourself. Bring it to class on Monday and be prepared to discuss it.

Deadline: Monday morning, March 3, 2008

N.B. Lessons are cancelled on Monday morning for the start of the academic year, but not in the afternoon so see you then ;-)
As always, write a comment if you’ve got questions.
If you all do your homework and we have a lively discussion, we may have time to take a look at your mid-term papers.
