Part of the mandatory 3-part pre-departure intercultural workshop series
PDO Workshop II is part of the mandatory 3-part pre-departure intercultural workshop series for students who plan to study abroad during the Spring 2019 semester. Students need to attend each of these 3 workshops in any order –
- Grappling with Culture I
- Living & Learning II
- Identity and Relationships III
This workshop will be offered on select Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the fall semester. Students only have to attend each workshop once.
In order to prepare for the workshop, all attendees must review the workshop syllabus and complete an assignment before attending the session. This is accessible on Totara.
While studying abroad, students encounter differences from pace of life to communication patterns to value systems, among many others. This session will offer exercises tailored for students to engage with difference and to develop a skill set for shifting frames and behaviors for their new context.
