Facilitator: Dr Erica Amery


Target Group: Postgraduate students and supervisors.


Background: Intercultural competence has become increasingly important in higher education institutions that places greater emphasis on internationalization. Promoting intercultural competence can lead to improved graduate supervisors’ and supervisees’ working relationships, which in turn can contribute to their well-being. The purpose of this workshop is to provide graduate students and supervisors with tools to effectively communicate and deal with conflicts in the supervisor/supervisee relationship.


Expected Outcomes:

  • Gaining knowledge of the theoretical background of intercultural competence
  • Learning to apply theory to practice in cross-cultural supervisee/supervisor relationships
  • Develop strategies to interact effectively with one another in cross-cultural supervisor/supervisee relationships
  • Develop strategies to effectively handle conflicts in cross-cultural supervisee/supervisor relationships


This workshop is funded by the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) through the University Capacity Development Grant (UCDG)
