The Diversity Outreach Collaborative sponsored an Intercultural Communications Workshop on November 3, 2011. Thorunn Bjarnadottir, Director of Intercultural Education and Beth Isensee, Program Director for Student Engagement for International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS) provided a 2 hour session.
Attached you will find pdf's of their powerpoint presentation along with two handouts provided at the workshop.
I also wanted to send a quick reminder that the Diversity Outreach Collaborative supports International Outreach in many ways. Some of the ongoing projects include:
- provides a one hour orientaiton session for the International Student Orientation Program*
- represent the libraries at the ISSS resource fair during the International Student Seminar: Succeeding at the U
- developed brochures as an intro to the libraries in English, Chinese, and Korean**
- created a libdata page for liaisons to link to - http://www.lib.umn.edu/libdata/page.phtml?page_id=3692
- host events during International Education Week
*All participants of the International Student Orientation Program received the English version of the brochure.
