Digital Literacy: Managing Online Cultures and Intercultural Communication


In today's increasingly digital world, it is more important than ever to be able to navigate online cultures and communicate effectively with people from different cultures. This session will provide participants with the tools and knowledge they need to do just that.

We will cover topics such as online culture, intercultural communication and how to avoid cultural faux pas. By the end of the workshop, you will be able to communicate more effectively with people from all over the world.

The session begins by exploring the different online cultures that exist and how they can vary from one another. It then discusses the importance of intercultural communication and how to avoid common pitfalls. Finally, it will provide you with a chance to practise your skills in a simulated online environment.

This session is designed for anyone who wants to improve their digital literacy and intercultural communication skills. It is perfect for students, professionals, and anyone who wants to be more successful in today's globalised world.
