Introducing my newest batch of intercultural explorers (#CRS400)

The new semester is off and running here at Syracuse University London, and I have a whole new group of students in my Intercultural Communication & Social Media class.  If you’re new to this blog, this course is a fusion of two subjects not often studied together.  So we use social media to explore culture, and culture to explore social media.

One of the course requirements is to write a self-reflective intercultural journal in the form of a blog, with weekly posts on assigned topics.  Throughout the term, I highlight some of the best posts here on my own blog.  We’re two weeks in, so they’re learning their way with both the platform and the topics, but already I’m loving what I’m seeing.  I invite you to join us in our explorations.  Click on any of the photos under “Blogs I Follow” on the right to read their posts, and feel free to add comments, share tips and join the conversation.
