Toolclip introductionIn this Toolclip you can explore the impact of different social and cultural backgrounds on the experience and interpretation of a situation. It provides you with one film clip, discussion manual and debrief questions to engage your students in short peer-to-peer dialogues.
Possible points for discussion
- How did each of the three people (Cory, Huanyu, the workshop facilitator) in the clip view the simulation?
- What cultural (and sub-cultural) groups are represented by Cory, Huanyu, and the facilitator?
- Can you recall an experience where you and someone else have had a very different interpretation of an event that has happened?
This toolclip comes from our Study Abroad Toolkit, which was developed in partnership with the SIT Graduate Institute. The video is an excerpt of our feature film The Dialogue (68 min) which focuses on young people discovering a variety of intercultural communication skills while traveling in China.
