Fascinating ideas on transcultural online-collaboration in HUM

Wonderful discussion in HUM. We are looking at ways to help students develop transcultural skills in the particular context of online collaborations. Will lack of face to face interaction make collaborations, planning and projects across cultures harder, or will it actually reduce the scope for mis-understandings? It’s fascinating to think about. Better maybe we’ll get some insight into the personal qualities and behaviours that facilitate transcultural online working. It is almost impossible to predict the kinds of employment this generation of graduates will have in twenty years. But on current trends, with the forces of globalisation and technology acting together, I can’t help thinking these might be the skills to build.

Language, communication, teaching and technology blended: utterly irresistible!
