Abstract

As international online access grows, students are increasingly participating in a global community. Cultural groups, however, can have different perspectives on how to communicate online. For this reason, it is important that today’s students learn how to address cultural communication expectations when interacting in cyberspace. This paper presents activities and resources instructors can use to familiarize students with the international nature of online discourse.
