Hofstede 1980 study on cultural dimensions – I am reviewing this as we prepare for the flat classroom conference – as we have students design flat classroom projects, we want to have a framework for them to understand the differences in cultures.
I’ve never thought about it this way, but the differentiation of a project has to also be cultural differentiation and this research has information on how to do that.
I’ve seen some information about updating this research, but none widely cited. I would love insight from any readers out there who are experts on cultural differences and dimensions so that we can well prepare for the Flat Classroom student summit.
Information from a business talking about websites and how they should be changed based upon the cultural similarities and differences with your own.
