Cross Cultural Analysis (CCA) Year 1

Project 1: Country presentation


As a group of 3-5 people, you are to investigate a country using Hofstede’s dimensions. What you have to do is to decide as a group which country you would like to investigate. Products of this project are (1) A group presentation and (2) A group report, each counts for 50% of your grade. All presentations will take place in block 2.


Evaluation criteria:

Good rationale: This means you are not going to just present a country profile with colourful festival dress and strange habits. You need to have good academic discussion, provide sound theoretical framework, link your examples to rational arguments and quote reliable literature sources, including but absolutely not limited to Hofstede’s theory. In fact, you are encouraged to refer to other intercultural frameworks.

Concreteness and elaboration: This means you are going to illustrate your report and presentation with concrete examples, elaborated cases, and detailed discussions. In short, spice up your report and presentation. Prepare a wide range of examples, case studies, quiz ...etc to interact with your classmates during and after your presentation.

Creativity: This means there is no limit for your imagination. My advice: Individually let your ideas run wild, then go to your group to make it more practical.

They are SYMBOLS (refer to Onion model) and should be linked with the values they present. For example sushi with its wonderful colour combination is a great example of how Yin-Yang harmony plays an important role in collectivistic Japan.

Tips:

1. You may want to construct your presentation and report based on a serie of stories. It is wise to follow our DAE model: 
 
D- Description: The ideal way is to start with a specific story such as a historical event, a movie, an article, a book, an on-going conflict....etc. This is the D-description. It should not take too much time, ideally not more than 1 minute. Do not get lost in all the data and details. This D-description part should not contain any judgement, evaluation or bias. It neeeds to be as objective as possible.  
 
A- Analysis: This is the main ...
