Intercultural Communication Videos

The videos here are based on materials on this PREZI. It is a review of aspects on communication across cultures that are taken up in the 3-ECTS-credit module that I teach at the Ă…land UAS in Finland.

Video #1 is an introduction to ICC including definitions of culture

Video #2 deals with the roots of misunderstanding cultural expressions

Video #3 discusses the iceberg metaphor of culture, how humans take in signals from their surroundings, and how our interests influence our world view

Video #4 takes up how interests can be keys to good communication and how our values influence our feelings and can lead to conflict

Video #5 looks at bad communication first: walls and wars. Then a broader look at the many areas where ICC takes place

Video #6 shows the sciences involved in ICC and lists why and when ICC is important

Video #7 takes up social systems and how we can analyse human behaviour successfully – although it is difficult

Video #8 is about societies and how they are like labyrinths in which we can find our way by using our capitals wisely – and promote ourselves with symbols and rituals

Video #9 deals with how groups are where the culture has its roots and how we can relate to groups

Video #10 shows examples of how strong masulinity can be a quite unfortunate influence in communication
