The two hours practice on data sets and presentations by participants made learning very engaging and fruitful.

Chetana’s Institute of Management & Research would like to express our deep gratitude towards Dr. Kalim Khan, Director, CRKIMR for his constant guidance and motivation in designing the FDP.

We are very grateful to Dr. Madhumita Patil, CEO, CRKIMR & CIMR for her unwavering guidance and support in conducting the first FDP program of this series. Also grateful to Director, CIMR, Dr. Nandita Mishra for her constant support, and always bringing in loads of positive energy.

In the opening address of the Dean, Faculty of Language and Literatures presented by the Deputy Dean I, Dr. Sahril M. Hum, he welcomed the participants, Faculty members from Makassar State University as well as from Universities and Indonesia and the Philippines. The Dean expressed that the topic was very relevant to the current global situation in the light of Indonesian Universities pursuing international cooperation. He mentioned that the FDP was planned with an objective of providing Indian perspective of cross-cultural aspects in the teaching process and develop a positive attitude. He expressed that there was a need for the faculty to possess good cross-cultural competence in order to play an effective role in international academic interactions.

"Hopefully the cooperation that has been established for today's activities can pave the way for other forms of cooperation between our two institutions in the future," said Deputy Dean.

The curriculum was designed with a blend of practical and theoretical approaches for dealing with cross-cultural differences through interactive sessions, quizzes, reflections and case study discussion. The participants demonstrated high level of interaction with the facilitator and were open to sharing their experiences.

Dr. Madhumita Patil, CEO and I/C Director, CIMR graced the FDP and addressed the participants. She shared her experience of interacting with other cultures and need for such collaborative programme to enrich academic exchange of knowledge. She expressed her pleasure in meeting the participants virtually and was positive that the association with UNM would prove to be fruitful for both the institutions. She acknowledged the contribution of Dr. Chairil Anwar Korompot, Head of the English Education Study Program, Dr. Nur Aeni, moderator for the FDP and Dr. Mahesh Luthia, the facilitator for their efforts of organising the programme.

Dr. Chairil Anwar Korompot, proposed the vote of thanks. He expressed his gratitude and appreciation to Dr. Madhumita Patil, CEO and I/C Director, CIMR and Dr. Mahesh Luthia.
