Elements for Intercultural Communication
Miquel Rodrigo Alsina
Revista CIDOB d'Afers Internacionals , 1997,
Abstract: In the first place the concepts of multiculturality and interculturality are explained clarified. It is pointed out that the same social objectives are not always pursued under such labels. Multiculturality refers to a situation of cultural coexistence, while interculturality refers to the relationships among different cultures.To make feasible these cultural interrelationship an intercultural competence must be acquired. One must not fall into the fallacious belief that communication is a perfect conveyor of information. Communication is a process of generating meaning, which, in the case of intercultural communication takes on specific characteristics. The point is to be aware of these characteristics and to achieve the goal of efficient communication. To that effect, the participants must be endowed with both a cognitive and emotional competence, the intercultural traits of which are thereby explained by the author. Appropriate intercultural behavior is the result of the synergy of both such competences. Lastly, the aims of intercultural communication are refelected upon, aims which should imply significantchange in multicultural societies today.

Knowledge, Communication and E-learning in Higher Education Perception and Differences of Traditional and Modern Academic Status  [cached]
Silvia-Adriana Tomescu
EIRP Proceedings , 2010,
Abstract: The aim of the present analyze is to underline the importance of a systemic approach of knowledge communication in eLearning academic sphere, in order to improve the efficiency and quality of research. Atthe same time, we intend to notice and shape the evolution of both teacher and learner status in higher education. The rhetoric about knowledge is often associated with organization and transfer of information. To provide students with a modern understanding of the shared values” in higher education has become an important objective. The teachers have to adapt new forms of e-delivery of discipline content, form and inform about e-resources for learning. We have to develop national strategies and add value to the role ofuniversity as a key factor in e-learning. The knowledge transfer at academic level, can be fully realized only when information encounters in the student the optimal set of tools designed to facilitate learning, and an individual style of thinking, so as to analyze fundamental questions and to be able to validate or invalidate the information. The teacher status evolves from content expert to metacognition expert, from guide in valuable information search to knowledge communicator. The present analyze reflects some aspects of the consequences that new forms of communication evolved during transition from traditional to e-academic environment.
Interkulturelle Kommunikations- und Kompetenzforschung aus wissensanthropologischer Sicht Intercultural Communication and Competence Research through the Lens of an Anthropology of Knowledge La investigación en la comunicación intercultural y competencia a través de la mirada de una antropología del conocimiento
Gertraud Koch
Forum : Qualitative Social Research , 2008,
Abstract: Aufgrund von theoretischen Schwierigkeiten in der Bestimmung von Kultur wie auch wegen des zugrunde liegenden Kommunikationsverst ndnisses, das sich haupts chlich an Kooperation und Verst ndigung orientiert, steht jede Forschung im Feld der interkulturellen Kommunikationsforschung vor der Herausforderung, sich zu diversen epistemologischen Paradoxien zu positionieren. Der folgende Beitrag exploriert, inwieweit ein wissensanthropologisches Paradigma, wie es in der jüngeren Kultur- bzw. Sozialanthropologie vorgeschlagen wird und das Kultur als Wissen konzeptualisiert, zu einem neuen Verst ndnis interkultureller Kommunikation und Kompetenz beitragen kann. Weitergehend werden die Konsequenzen diskutiert, die aus einem solchen Verst ndnis für die Konstruktion der Forschungsfelder in der interkulturellen Kommunikation erwachsen. URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs0901153 In consequence of various predicaments of the culture concepts and of an applied communication theory, that is mainly oriented towards cooperation and understanding, research in the field of intercultural communication is facing epistemological paradoxes. The following article explores how a paradigm of culture as knowledge, as it has been discussed in recent Cultural and Social Anthropology, could contribute to a new understanding of intercultural communication and competence (ICC). It further discusses the consequences emerging from such an understanding for the construction of research fields in ICC. URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs0901153 La investigación en el campo de la comunicación intercultural se enfrenta a paradojas epistemológicas como consecuencia de las diferentes opiniones sobre los conceptos de cultura y de la aplicación de la teoría de la comunicación, la cual está orientada principalmente hacia la cooperación y el entendimiento. El siguiente artículo explora cómo un paradigma de la cultura como conocimiento, según ha sido discutido en la reciente antropología cultural y social, podría contribuir a un nuevo entendimiento de la comunicación intercultural y competencia. Discute, además, las consecuencias que surgen de tal entendimiento para la construcción de campos de investigación en la ICC. URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs0901153
