Teaching and Learning

Fellowship Fridays are Back for Summer

submitted by maherk@augsburg.edu

CTL is joining Bridget Robinson-Riegler, Psychology Professor and member of Faculty Senate, to bring you Fellowship Fridays support sessions. All faculty members and teaching staff are invited to gather and share their experiences with teaching, learning, and advising in this strange new world. – we’ll trade ideas, advice, highs, lows, successes, and failures – or maybe we’ll just plain old vent. Most importantly, we will attempt to inoculate ourselves against one of the more insidious side effects of this pandemic – isolation. So grab a cup of coffee or tea, or pour a glass of wine, and Zoom in to support your fellow instructors and work through this challenging time together.

Fridays | “Fellowship Fridays” | 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm, ZOOM

If you need any disability-related accommodation to fully participate in this event, please contact University Events at events@augsburg.edu or 612-330-1104. Please allow for sufficient time to arrange the accommodation.

Forum webinar, Mastering Cultural Differences: Strategies for Leading a Global Workforce

submitted by gocmen@augsburg.edu

When: May 27, 2021 11:00 am – 12:00 pm CST
Level: Introductory
Track: Global Diversity
Presenter: Luiza Dreasher, Mastering Cultural Difference
Cost: Free

With the trend toward a more diverse workforce continuing, so are the ways we conduct business. In the past, most U.S. businesses functioned primarily within our borders. Today, globalization is proving to be a huge game changer for many companies, big and small. With globalization and increased immigration, the potential for misunderstandings in the workplace is really high. First, language differences may lead to miscommunication and misinterpretation. Second you fail to take into account significant cultural differences. For example, during a performance review, you provide constructive criticism to an employee with the intent of helping him improve his performance. Later on you learn that he quit his job because of the shame and loss of face your feedback caused. In this interactive Webinar, you will understand the impact of cultural differences in the workplace and learn strategies to bridge those differences effectively.

Learning Outcomes
Learn the importance of paying attention to cultural differences in the workplace
Recognize differences in communication styles
Apply strategies to communicate effectively with a global workforce
