CORE Seminar: What is Globalization
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Where: See event website
Description: CORE is a unique distance-learning resource created to deepen the experience of students who study, intern, or do research abroad. CORE helps you to make these connections between your abroad experience and your larger life goals with a "wrap around" structure of seminars and mentorship before, during, and after time abroad.This seminar discusses "globalization" and related concepts that are frequently used but much misunderstood. Our goal is to sort through the imprecision and gain a basic proficiency with a method for understanding the dynamics of globalization that have taken world cultures (including our own) and intertwined them on an unprecedented level. From trade and production, to tourism and social media, students analyze global processes and develop a framework for understanding their own lived engagements, whether near or far.

Description: CORE is a unique distance-learning resource created to deepen the experience of students who study, intern, or do research abroad. CORE helps you to make these connections between your abroad experience and your larger life goals with a "wrap around" structure of seminars and mentorship before, during, and after time abroad. By popular demand, we have created a seminar for people who are or are planning to pursue a long-term career, life, and residence in another country and language. We will examine complex challenges that emerge, including issues of identity, relationships, culture, and communication, when there is no clear "return" date for your experience abroad. We will also discuss strategies and approaches for addressing these complex challenges.For more information, visit http://core.iso.virginia.edu

CORE Seminar: Culture Shock--> Cultural Insight

Where: See event website
Description: CORE is a unique distance-learning resource created to deepen the experience of students who study, intern, or do research abroad. CORE helps you to make these connections between your abroad experience and your larger life goals with a "wrap around" structure of seminars and mentorship before, during, and after time abroad.We designed this seminar especially for people who have spent time outside their comfort zone (here or abroad), and who have stories of mishaps, missteps, and misunderstandings to tell. Join us for a hands-on, expressive workshop that encourages you to make your way playfully from first impressions to a deeper sense of understanding. We invite you to make your way from personal stories of shock and awe to a more useful, nuanced narrative that can become a valuable asset in your studies, your job search, and beyond.
