Experiential Exercises and Pedagogy Track Workshop: Experiencing Cultural Diversity in the Classroom (and the Hotel Meeting Room)


  • Virginia Arthur
  • Wendy Klepetar


"How does cultural diversity effect our perceptions of others and our own interpersonal behavior? This workshop will increase our understanding of how cultural differences effect us and how, specifically, they effect business people engaged in negotiations. We will consider issues of multiculturalism in the United States as well as in the international business field. Participants will learn more about their own cultures’ values and will create a simulated culture in the workshop. They will then negotiate with members of another simulated culture, and analyze the efficacy of their results from the perspective of intercultural relations as well as profit enhancement. "
