Course description

Lots of PhD researchers come from another country, and several Belgian PhD students work in an intercultural environment and will themselves go abroad later. In this 1 day interactive course we explore how academic cultures are different and what helps you to work in a global team. The workshop uses a simulation game and the interculturality in the group.

On the program:

  • exchange about doing a PhD in Belgium 
  • global teams simulation game
  • making university profiles and adapting to them

You get the opportunity to look up your own personal profile according to the 8 cultural dimensions of Erin Meyer (INSEAD Business School).


Simulation game, group exercises, discussion, only a bit of theory
