Abstract

Since 2005 QUT through a number of large Teaching and Learning Grants has sponsored a range of teamwork learning initiatives to assist students to develop the teamwork skills demanded by industry. After a suite of six online team learning modules was developed, first year unit coordinators requested an additional module to address the challenges of working with the diverse range of social, cultural and personal values that students from different backgrounds bring to student teams. The Intercultural Teams module asks students to map themselves against a Cultural Orientations Framework so they can understand their own cultural beliefs. By learning about other cultural orientations and comparing and analysing their effects, team members can develop communication and team process management strategies to leverage their differences to realise effective and creative outcomes. The interactive session will demonstrate the elements of the Intercultural Teams module and ask participants to consider ways the module can be integrated into classroom learning to support the development of students’ intercultural competencies.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
