Primary Instructor:

This course offers a unique opportunity for students to learn about other cultures in a face-to-face environment without having to leave their classroom. The cultural exchange is based both on written communications between pairs of students (via chatting and collaborative written assignments) as well as through “web-streamed” face-to-face dialogue. Students will spend the first portion of the semester focusing on intercultural communication concepts and creating images and descriptions of the UM campus to share with their international partners. The remainder of the semester will be spent communicating with international partners on topics such as: college life, culture/traditions, religion/the meaning of life, and stereotypes/prejudices. Permission of instructor required for registration: jyim@umich.edu.
