Global Competency Skill Development

The instructional team for Agricultural & Extension Education (AEE) 100 wanted to provide students with an opportunity to develop and practice intercultural communication skills.  Members of the Global Teach Ag! Team were consulted.

Lesson objectives included defining and discussing the importance of intercultural communication, demonstrating intercultural communication through an in-class experience and discussing additional on-campus opportunities for intercultural communication.

Engaging International Students

Global Teach Ag! team members worked with the leadership of two student organizations to recruit international students for the lesson activity. Twenty students from Malaysia and Vietnam participated in a speed dating-style activity that involved one-on-one communication with students in the class.

Feedback from all participating students was very positive.  International students enjoyed the opportunity to share information about themselves, their country and culture with domestic students.
