Abstract: How can intercultural action competence be encouraged in design students? In an intercultural workshop environment, accompanied by an empirical evaluation, the aim is to study and test what motivates participants to work in mixed-nationality teams. The experimental approach of my intercultural design workshops (since 2009) is based on progressive education, less on rational-scientific problem-solving strategies. The “problem” in intercultural and monocultural communication is not external; it is an internal part of our individual and culturally influenced diversity. The content, method, learning world and final design are developed using action-based, constructivist didactics. The tutor is more adviser and observer than teacher or trainer. The method aims to advance intercultural competence thus diminishing cultural and individual barriers. Participants encounter international working methods and design styles, enhancing their professional motivation. The research uses qualitative/qu alitative surveys, action-research case studies, interview videos to explore design approaches in intercultural workshops. That animation as a medium motivates participants to join the intercultural workshop was not confirmed. However, the workshop format as a key factor generating sustainable interest in learning was very well received. The concept has proved its merit, and workshop participation unquestionably led to an increase in intercultural media competence, flexibility, tolerance and communication skills. (More)
