GENERAL ADVICE: CHOOSE TO KNOW YOUR PARTNER THE BEST YOU CAN!  A).-Introduce yourselves to your cultural partners and get to know each other A good way to know a person or future client is to interview him/her about their culture. Life cycle events and holidays are part of the culture and a very good to start a conversation with someone you don´t know. Life cycle event for example are celebrated and practiced differently among various cultures  –  events such as birth, passage from childhood to adulthood, marriage and death, etc. You can also ask about holidays and their meaning. All countries have holidays and would be a good way to start a conversation with someone from another country and/or culture. Below there is a list of subjects you can ask about life cycle events you can use to know your “online partner”    3 Example, Marriage: Weddings a.   Ceremony, Timing of the event, Food that is eaten, Location of the event b.   Wardrobe/Clothing worn at the event c.   Length of time the event takes place d.   Religious or cultural person who conducts the event e.   Historical/Cultural reason the event is performed or exists f.   Who participates or attends the event You can also get to know your partner asking about his/her career, the place he/she lives (other country than US), about living and studying in Boston, etc. Remember: first part of your assignment is getting to know your partner and you will report this experience. B) Create a Journal    Create a Digital Communication Journal in which you record each time you attempt to, or successfully make contact with your cultural partner.    You must list all dates/time contact was attempted and when responses were received.    Both digital journals (getting to know each other phase and Assignment phase) will be emailed to your professor at the conclusion of the collaborative learning project.    In each journal students will report their experience in terms of: communication process, difficulties/strengths. This part should also be a reflection on what you learned during this task. Here are some prompts to help you write this part. These are just prompts: they should guide you but your reflection will be determined by your own experience and findings during the interaction. Reflect on what you expected about the other partner/ culture before the interaction, and explain how your perspective and attitude have changed as a result of this intercultural encounter.  __________________________________________________________________________________ Phase 2: Getting an online partner (Timing: to be determined) I.    ASSIGNMENT FOR “PARTNERS GROUP”    “CHOOSE AN ITEM OR SERVICE –    DO AN INTERVIEW OR CREATE A PARTNERSHIP” INSTRUCTIONS: PARTNERS GROUP    Look for a product or service; from any industry that you choose, that according to your perspective (intuition, knowledge) could be interesting to be inserted into the American market in Boston. (You can research on Internet; choose something from technology that was created at the university, a product or service created by Chilean entrepreneurs, or a Chilean srcinal product that you would like to internationalize)
