Intercultural Awareness in Canadian Study and Work Environments MOOC 0201

Massive Open Online Courses Course

Course details

​This course deals with the importance of intercultural factors for international students or recently arrived immigrants studying or working in Canada. While Canada is a country that prides itself on cultural diversity, many newcomers find that learning styles and workplace culture in Canada are significantly different than what they are used to in their home country. This course aims to help learners be aware of these differences and teach strategies for adapting to them. *Note: Thank you for your interest in a BCIT – Free Online Learning course.
