Modeling the Global Workplace Using Emerging Technologies
Dorazio, Patricia; Hickok, Corey
Journal of Educational Technology Systems, v36 n2 p157-170 2007-2008
The Fall 2006 term of COM495, Senior Practicum in Communication, offered communication and information design students the privilege of taking part in a transatlantic intercultural virtual project. To emulate real world experience in today's global workplace, these students researched and completed a business communication project with German students attending Fachhochschule Hannover, Germany. Students had to come to grips with differences in language and culture, but in doing so, they also developed and refined competencies and skills in emerging technologies. This article covers the course's project and its goals, analyzes the students' experiences, and focuses on the technologies students discovered and used to bridge the cultural, virtual, and communication divide.
