Did you know that each graduate student at Dartmouth gets their own website? If you didn’t, now is the time to set one up! With upcoming conferences and presentations, this is a great way to get your name out there. Or if you’re just starting, this is a great way to build a foundation. Practically no computer experience is necessary. I’m not teaching you how to build a website from scratch, but rather how to customize a template.

Here's my site as an example

1. Register for the workshop!
2. Request a site from Dartmouth! [log in>new request>personal]
3. Download a text editor! [TextWrangler, Notepad++, Sublime Text]
4. Download an FTP client! [Cyberduck, FileZilla]
5. Find a template you love! [and professional]

Don't forget to bring your laptop!

Living in the US as a foreigner and studying with people from all over the world can sometimes make you feel alienated, embarrassed, or misunderstood due to different value systems and ways of communicating.

In this workshop, we will explore these culture bumps in order to improve our intercultural communication skills. Following a 10-minute video on Cross-Cultural Communication, we will break out into small groups to discuss what makes your culture different from those of your professors or fellow international graduate students.

We will be comparing our different cultural norms and customs based on the dimensions of national culture established by Social Psychologist Geert Hofstede.

The insight gained from this workshop will help you
•   to be more tolerant and understanding of cultural differences
•   avoid culture bumps through enhancing your cultural competence
•   navigate intercultural differences at Dartmouth and in the work place.

Please try to be on time for the workshop and bring your laptop or tablet.

The hour-long workshop will be followed by IGMP’s Pre-Christmas Evening Social in the same location.

This workshop will be facilitated by Dr. Melina Gehring, Multilingual Specialist and International Graduate Student Advisor at the Graduate Office.

This is a writing workshop curated by the Dartmouth Writers Society and presented especially for DWS by The Writer's Hotel. We will focus on the skills needed to become a professional writer with an emphasis on publication, crafting a query letter, finding where to submit in your genre, and locating literary agents, editors, and online tools to access the greater writing community. TWH is generously donating their time for this event in the interest of supporting fellow writers.
