S5 Ep2 Educational Culture Shock

Culture shock is an interesting phenomenon, and what often shocks us are at first the BIG difference we see. But, after enough time, we might find there are many small shocks that we may continue facing long after the big shocks have passed.

In this episode, we talk about how different cultural expectations about education shape how we think and behave inside and outside the classroom. Clay and Seth share their educational culture shock experiences as foreigners in Norway. Collectively, we share ideas about how we think other international students can overcome educational culture shock and improve their experiences at a Norwegian University.
