This practicum will allow UM students to collaborate with students from Universitas Padjadjaran in Bandung, Indonesia. The goals of this assignment are

  1. To learn about different cultures through social and academic interactions with students from a non-European culture.
  2. To collaborate with peers in an online, culturally diverse setting.
  3. To expand knowledge of basic concepts in humanitarian work psychology and sustainable development goals and translate this understanding in the design of educational materials.
  4. To build psychological literacy by applying psychological science to a societal problem and writing a research or intervention proposal. *(KUI)
