This presentation shows that students in different cultural contexts have different perceptions of time management and work organization. Particularly in group work scenarios, such differences can have a frustrating impact on students from other cultural contexts because e.g., expectations are not met. Being aware of such differences between the learners in a culturally heterogeneous educational scenario, educators can prevent frustration by introducing their students and providing more specific instructions.
