Each year Grenoble Institute of Technology’s engineering school, Phelma, hosts nearly 250 international students (200 undergrads and 50 grad students) from 50 different countries. On October 11, 2012 the school will hold its first-ever intercultural workshop at MINATEC. Open to French and international students alike, the workshop will give students an opportunity to meet and build bridges between cultures.
The workshop will open with an introductory talk before students break out into small, multinational groups for role-playing activities highlighting some of the differences in how we communicate across cultures. French students participating in the workshop can also opt to “sponsor” an international student after the event to build on the connections made and help create a lasting intercultural dynamic on campus.
