Intercultural Awareness & Communication training

EDI training

This course is designed to increase cultural awareness among NUI Galway staff members working with international students and/or in an intercultural environment, and to foster better interactions and communication between staff and international students.

The workshop will encourage participants to explore their own assumptions and preconceptions about other cultures, as well as creating awareness of their own cultural heritage and how it affects their world views, values and assumptions. The session also encourages participants to focus on their communication style, and how it is affected by culture, as well as the importance of non-verbal communication signals and the way these affect the communication process. The session is interactive and draws upon participants' own experiences.

The next workshops will take place online via Zoom on the following dates:

  • Tuesday 11th May: 10am-1pm
  • Thursday 13th May: 2pm-5pm
