Courses for UCC Staff

UCC Staff workshop December 2021

Title of Workshop

Language-related Communication Skills for the International Workplace: communicating effectively together


Wednesday 8th December 2021 at 10.00 GMT via Microsoft Teams. The workshop will last 90 minutes.


With a diverse multicultural and multilingual staff and student body here at UCC, it is important that we each strive to become skilled communicators in an international context, aware of how we use English as a working language in our university and equipped to adapt where necessary. This workshop will provide you with an enhanced understanding of how we can better communicate in linguistically diverse organisations and teams. It will also provide you with real-world examples and opportunities to put this knowledge into practice, focusing on spoken communication.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the workshop, you will: 

  • have a deeper understanding of spoken language use, whether English is your first or an additional language 
  • have an increased awareness of the linguistic challenges facing all staff and students in an international environment like UCC
  • be able to use a variety of techniques to adapt your spoken language use and avoid miscommunication in the workplace
  • be able to check that your messages have been understood to ensure clearer communication in the workplace
