In a time when online learning helps those limited by COVID measures, the SISU-Future Learn “Intercultural Communication” course provides an important forum for cross-cultural exposure and interaction. To help connect people virtually world-wide again, a new run of the course opens March 15 until July 2021 and offers FREE access from the day of enrollment for 7 weeks of learning. Nearly 65,000 have enrolled in the SISU-FutureLearn “Intercultural Communication” MOOC course from nearly 200 global countries and regions since it was first launched in 2015.
The course invites participation on every “learning step”. Learners of all ages and backgrounds and our active team of Mentors comment on their questions, insights, “likes,” or responses to others. The “5 week” structure (which you can go through at your own pace) addresses topics like
- Comprehending Intercultural Communication
- Contextualizing Cultural Identities
- Comparing Cultural Communication Styles
- Clarifying and Contrasting Values
- Cultivating Intercultural Adaptation
to guide active participants toward greater awareness and practice of intercultural competence.
