Description

Robert Cox, PhD, Senior Associate Dean for Globalization at Purdue’s Polytechnic Institute (PPI), discusses the evolution of his Technology and Global Society (TECH 330) course. This capstone course for tomorrow’s technology worker examines the interplay of technology, globalization and ethics; and uses a common intercultural competence instrument to help students better understand their personal ability to work effectively across difference.

Dr. Cox provides a course overview and then talks about what he has learned by asking “techies” to reflect on their own intercultural competence for several years, as well as how he changed the course to both support and challenge his students due to the COVID-19 shift to an all-online learning environment. He includes a few of the student reflection videos that were submitted this semester highlighting their top take aways from the class.
