ALPHA OMEGA: UNDERSTANDING CULTURE AND CULTURAL DIFFERENCES

Students will be able to:

  • Explore and state attributes of different communications styles
  • Listen to/connect the communication style to their own experiences 
  • Analyze their own communication style and its effect on their interest

This workshop highlights various aspects of different individuals (what is observable, what is assumed), how culture impacts behavior, and the meaning that individuals attach to culturally-influenced behaviors. Through a role play exercise students can begin to understand what affects one’s perspective, and how to work with others from different cultures and communication styles.
