European Dialogue Project 2014

Students of the Master’s degree programme in Controlling and Management are presenting their first research findings from the European Dialogue Project on Friday 9 May 2014, from 15:00 to 17:00 at the Sankt Augustin Campus in the rear part of Hochschulstraße (main building).

Students from Portugal, Italy, France and Germany are jointly taking part in the project, which is aimed at teaching intercultural skills. Within the framework of the project 80 students, 20 of whom are enrolled at Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University, are cooperating in the virtual world. The participants from four countries have regularly met online since the beginning of March. They have joined to form international teams that are conducting research studies on various aspects of European values. The findings of the studies will be published in a joint compendium.

"Our goal is to enable students to acquire intercultural skills and to interact interculturally. The project enables students to acquire practical intercultural skills based on theoretical expertise derived from communication science," Regina Brautlacht said. The students are taking part in the project within the framework of her course "Communication Skills for Management".

Regina Brautlacht, head of English Language Studies in the Language Centre, initiated the project jointly with her colleagues, Professor Franca Poppi from Italy, Dr Lurdes Martins from Portugal and Csilla Ducrocq from France.
