Jump-Start Intercultural Dialogue with Social Media

Join us for a lively session about using social media to connect your students with peers abroad. See how a pre-trip engagement project laid the groundwork for meaningful face-to-face contact during short-term embedded course travel to Ireland. Learn how voluntary responses to icebreaker prompts quickly opened channels to meaningful dialogue about psychology issues within students’ diverse communities. You’ll also learn about project requirements and outcomes, test drive the Yammer social media platform, explore alternative social media platforms, and discuss how to incorporate similar projects.
