To complete the course:
- enrol in SoleOps
- start a blog in the blogging platform of your choosing (PUBLIC i.e. open to all readers)
- send a link to the blog to email@example.com before you leave for exchange (your blog will be linked to the main course blog http://ourculturalexperiences.blogspot.fi/)
- write about 40 posts with photos, videos and texts (about 80h work) during your entire stay abroad
- write in your posts about cultural shocks and other culture-related matters, on language, sights, food etc. Tell the readers what you experienced, how you felt, would you do something differently the next time, what to take into account compared to the Finnish culture etc. Include at least two theories on cultural awareness to the posts (e.g. Hofstede, Lewis) and reflect your own experiences.
Thus, the posts cannot be only about telling what you have done and where you will go.
Remember that the blog has readers and the posts should also give something to them. You might receive comments, so remember to answer them!
The blog can be quite personal, and the purpose is to show the writer’s persona and convey his/her emotions.
Once you have completed the assignment needed to complete the course, i.e. a blog with about 40 posts, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
