    Global Encounters in Local Settings

    Practical project-based, interdisciplinary course designed to combine foreign and domestic students so that they can collaborate on developing their interpersonal, intercultural and language competences by participating in real life tasks. Students will work in teams on tasks connected with their study field and involving direct or indirect service to meet the needs of a specific community/institution/organization. The intention of the course is to develop students' generic (transferable) skills like teamwork, project management, interacting with community, reflection as academic practice, build their cultural and interpersonal competencies; to induce understanding of some aspects of intercultural communication so that students will gain awareness of intercultural competence and insights into other global topics depending on their specialization - through methods of cooperative and service learning.
