    How is an intercultural seminar different

    …from a workshop and conference?

    While an intercultural seminar is a one-off event that can last several days, depending on the topic and intensity, knowledge transfer in an intercultural course takes place in several pedagogical and didactic steps over a longer period of time. It’s almost like a step-by-step workout.

    An intercultural workshop is most similar to the intercultural seminar. Many elements overlap, which is why the terms are often confused. There is a clear distinguishing feature: the new knowledge is mainly acquired together in a moderated intercultural workshop. This means that theory takes a back seat to practice in group work. In order to make this possible, care is taken to ensure that the number of participants in intercultural workshops is smaller than in intercultural seminars.

    One speaks of an intercultural conference – also known as a congress, symposium or conference – when people who work in the same specialist area come together to exchange ideas and maintain contacts. Knowledge transfer takes place through lectures, presentations, workshops and panel discussions.

    It can be derived from the Latin “seminare” (translated: to sow) and is from its origin – and still today – a course at a university. The seminar there serves to deepen the academic knowledge of a subject and, in contrast to the lecture, is characterized by a small group and increased interaction between the students.

    The same pattern can be found in the intercultural seminar in adult education. At this unique further training event, the participants are not only taught theory in a small group – as in a lecture – but are directly involved. Through questions, teamwork, practical case studies, role plays and discussions, you will actively participate in acquiring the new intercultural skills for practice. This is very important, especially in a professional context. In the seminar topic -intercultural- the personal experiences in connection with the results make a much better impression than notes from informative lectures. Each individual benefits sustainably from the exchange with me as the seminar leader and the other participants.

    I will actively involve you as a seminar participant.
