Students who have taken this course are able to co-operate and work in multicultural virtual teams. They are able to communicate efficiently and fluently in work-related interactive situations with emphasis on meetings and negotiations. The students can write texts and written messages demonstrating the control of communicative professional situations.

The students can also efficiently understand and summarize texts. They are able to use academic style and use references properly in their written production. The students are ready to develop their professional identities through self-reflective tasks during the course.

This course corresponds to the CEFR language levels C1-C2. (CEFR = Common European Framework for Languages).

This six credit course focuses on professional communications, virtual team and project work, multicultural co-operation, academic and professional writing, and professional self-development.

The course includes two mandatory online sessions at the beginning of the course and three online group simulations later during the course. The two online sessions will be held in the evenings with the teacher and the whole group present.

After the online sessions, the students will be divided into groups. Each group will do three online group simulations organized according to the students’ own schedule. Furthermore, the students complete twelve written individual assignments related to the different course topics supporting the online group simulations.

The assignments are tailored based on the findings of language needs studies and are based on real working life communication situations. For example, the case company of the negotiation simulations is a local, existing company.
