Intercultural skills – foundation level

The MOOC – Intercultural skills is specifically targeted for university students 👨🏽‍🎓interested to improve their Intercultural skills both in learning and learning contexts.

However, teachers 👩🏻‍🏫 could also find useful sources for themselves and for their educational practices. 

This course is aimed to support the development of these intercultural skills:

1. Gaining cultural knowledge;

2. Understanding cultural perspectives;

3. Being able to deal with intercultural issues (in workplaces, at the university, in informal contexts and so on).

Furthermore, you will exchange knowledge with peers from different cultural settings. At the end of the course, you will acquire the ability to avoid cultural misunderstandings, by becoming more aware of the cultural prejudices.

Before starting the MOOC, you are required to take a quiz, that you consider as a way to pre-assess your skills. According to the score obtained, you will be suggested to start from the foundation level (this course), intermediate level or advanced level. In each level, you will read texts, e-books or PDFs, watch videos and forums. Once all the tasks are completed, you will complete an e-assessment in order to obtain a badge that certifies your skills. You will receive your badge by email in approximately 24 hours.
