Tim Tausendfreund, lecturer at the ZHAW School of Social Work, reports from the study exchange with students from the Hanzehogeschool in Groningen (Netherlands).
Welcoming the other and critically questioning one’s own, are two core competencies for a successful transnational dialogue. Our study exchange this year themed around the topic of «human rights issues» in Switzerland. It was an incredibly inspiring week for all of us thanks to the students’ curiosity and our wonderful hosts out there in the field.
Curious yourself? Have a look! Here are some selected impressions from our study exchange.

« Diversity: the art of thinking independently together. » Malcom Forbes
In the 21st century, multiculturalism and diversity are becoming common at the workplace due to globalisation. Populations in many countries have grown culturally diverse. Hence having «cultural intelligence» is extremely important to cater the diverse needs of this diverse pool of people.

Was mit einem Sabbatical in Zürich und einem Besuch in Detroit begann, wurde vergangene Woche mit einem Gegenbesuch einer Delegation der Wayne State University School of Social Work aus Detroit an der ZHAW Soziale Arbeit weitergeführt. Der viertägige Austausch war intensiv und hat das gegenseitige Interesse an einer Zusammenarbeit bestärkt.
