This course is developed under ECoVEM project to equip the participants with education and training solutions in building up soft skills for the new jobs in microelectronics. The course focuses on fundamental concepts and practical applications of intercultural competences in everyday life and business interactions. It aims at enhancing awareness of cultural backgrounds and sensitivity regarding contexts (social, cultural, professional, etc.) in which we live and communicate. The target audience includes students (B/M/PhD), teachers/instructors, professionals from SME in microelectronics, engineers from other sectors, and educated but unemployed people who are looking for additional training for employment. The course will cover general topics, like identity, perception and interpretation, cultural dimensions, stereotyping, language as picture of the world, communication styles, non-verbal language. It will also provide insights into business interactions with reference to intercultural concepts. Course participants will be encouraged to draw on their first-hand cultural/transcultural experiences acquired during their work in international companies located in Europe. Assignments, self-study and on-line activities are designed to trigger discussions and exchange of ideas and opinions among the audience. This course is intended to help you become more effective leaders of culturally-mixed teams through developing intercultural awareness.
