Embedding Experiential, Contact-Based, Cultural Intelligence in Management Education: A common-ground specific approach

Dr Brent MacNab
Students engaged in management education will undertake an experiential cultural intelligence education process that includes the establishment of mutually-agreed, tangible goals (between student project groups and external cultural community members). The project examines to what degree the establishment of specified, tangible goals with external contact communities enhances the intended Cultural Intelligence educational development cycle versus approaches that have implicit, more intangible goals.

Towards egalitarianism

Dr Maree Stenglin
This project explores two strategies for embedding literacy in a first year core unit in the Bachelor of Commerce.
