 Cross-cultural communication and communication skills training in the era of self-media

Cross-cultural communication and communication skills training in the era of self-media

As technology advances, opportunities for cross-countries interaction have increased. Cultural exchanges, cultural collisions, cultural conflicts, and cultural fusions between countries now occur frequently. Especially with the rise of "self-media" through virtual network platforms in recent years, various kinds of information dissemination and interpersonal communication activities are no longer regionally restricted. To respond to such development trend of globalization and new media, this course involving both the local and foreign students has the objective to strengthen our students with international vision, develop language communication skills, enhance cultural absorption, build leadership and innovation capabilities. We hope that through the learning of self-media knowledge and related skills, students can develop their own brand stories in different fields in the future.Participants: Yuan Ze University studentsNumber of participants: 30 students (Waiting list will be open when reach maximum)Course date and venue: Please refer course planningCourses Deposit: NT$500Course Language: EnglishApplication Date: Starting from now until September 17th,2021 12:00 noon).Registration Form:https://forms.gle/CVS8roiCxNf3YC9ZARegistration Info: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1sKHev ... gGDC9UTt/view?usp=sharingShould you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Ms.Maureen(ming6022@saturn.yzu.edu.tw) or Mrs. Yen(yenhua@saturn.yzu.edu.tw).
