Summary: We teach two different courses with overlapping content related to women, leadership, and work. The classroom-based course at SUNY Oswego is entitled “Women in the Workplace” and the on-line course in Lebanon is entitled “International Cross-cultural Management.” Last semester our students participated in five weeks of asynchronous group discussions, completing a wiki and a PowerPoint presentation. Our focus in this presentation will be on how the attitudes, knowledge and skills of intercultural competence developed in students during the process of the collaboration.
