    Dear colleagues,

    We hope that you can join us for the second in our series of International HRM webinars! We held our first in June discussing the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on IHRM research. On Sept 14th, our second webinar will focus on digital teaching - a subject very close to all of our hearts and minds currently! Professor Marion Festing (ESCP Business School, Germany) will speak on 'The Cultural Context in IHRM: Recent developments and experiences from digital teaching innovations'.

    The cultural context in IHRM - Recent developments and experiences from digital teaching innovations


    Context is often what characterizes particularities of IHRM. For a long time, cultural context was equated with national cultural values investigated in prominent intercultural studies conducted by Hofstede or GLOBE. This led to an intense research program and an oversimplification of the topic in teaching. More recent intercultural research addressing cultural value archetypes, norms, schemata, the situated dynamic framework, cultural mosaic or polyculturalism provides a more differentiated view on culture. This webinar will discuss teaching innovations that integrate latest thinking on understanding and teaching about culture and diversity.

    One illustrative example is Moving Tomorrow, a serious game developed at ESCP Business School based on insights from experiential learning theory. It includes key concepts relevant to the cultural context in IHRM in a story telling design, where students have to take decisions that impact on how the story pans out. The overall goal of the game is that the learners value diversity, understand the implications for human interactions and IHRM, and act in a more inclusive way. The experiential game has been included in a blended design using roleplays, case studies, group discussions etc. in various countries.
