Overcoming language and cultural differences: Adapting to meet the training needs of an international audience

Speaker

Abstract

Training in your own institution or corporation can be challenging in trying to meet the goals of the program and the needs of the researchers. If you are challenged with training visiting international researchers or instructing overseas, tried and true methods that you have relied on may not be applicable. When you are at your own institution, you share with most of your students, a similar cultural background so communication and understanding is easier since you share a common ground. However, when you are presented with research personnel where english is their secondary language (or may not exist at all) you as the trainer are have to find a way to meet the needs of that student or students to fulfill their training requirements. You cannot use similar cultural references to relay information because those bridges do not exist. You have to adapt and step outside your comfort zone and make the training experience for your student personal and relatable. If you are training overseas, your physical training environment may present challenges. You may not have all the tools and equipment you need so you will have to adapt to meet the training needs. This presentation will discuss training outside those "comfort zones" when working with an international audience through my personnel experience. I will discuss how to adapt to your audience and training with international students whether at home or abroad. The presentation will discuss lessons learned and how changing your perspective can improve your own training program and how it will enhance your communication skills.
