27/06/2022 | Lecture on Simulation Games on Oct 25th and Nov 2nd 2022


An increasingly interdependent world requires globally competent professionals: Collaboration takes place in virtual teams across national, age, gender and educational boundaries. This requires intercultural and digital competencies.

Communications expert Prof. Dr. Jürgen Bolten and his colleague Barbara Nietzel from the University of Jena are using business games to find out how digitization can be used for international cooperation. On October 25 and November 2, 2022, they will present their research for us in a two-part event. The speaker will be Barbara Nietzel.


Part I on October 25th - introduction:

We will talk about how to learn intercultural competence in a holistic way and how we promote it in our online learning activities. We will focus on the simulation games Megacities and Bilangon and we will tell you about the scenario and how the process of such a simulation game looks like, how is it organized and how you can you participate with a group of students.

Part II on November 2nd - a closer look:

We explore the question of what exactly intercultural learning processes look like and what we can do as teachers and facilitators to make them as intensive and instructive as possible. We look at concrete examples from the simulation games and discuss together which group processes become effective here and which parallels you find in your cooperation with students.

The event will be held in English
