Orebro-Stanford: first of three connections!
Today we are holding the first of three video-conferences between Stanford and Orebro Sweden. Our focus today is getting to know each other and conducting a rhetorical analysis of website and cultural artifacts (objects and clothing).
We started off in a large auditorium room with all groups connecting, then the students met in small groups working on a lesson plan , and they created team names to share with the whole class again back in the virtual auditorium.
Students, please take a moment to write a comment on this blog entry with your response to your experiences connecting today. Be sure to include your name and institution.
• What did you learn about rhetoric and cross-cultural communication today?
• What was your GROUP TEAM NAME and rationale for your name?
• What was most memorable moment or element of the video-conference exchange? What surprised you the most?
• What new insights do you have that you can use for your rhetorical analysis work, your research project, or future intercultural communications?
Next Monday, we will connect again and bring in students from the American University of Cairo as well!
