ASSESSMENT OF INTERCULTURAL EXPERIENCE OF ASIAN VISITORS TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (ALEXANDRIA, MAY 10-13, 1966). APPLICATIONS OF HUMAN RELATIONS LABORATORY TRAINING, NUMBER 4, 1966.
CLEE, JAN E.; MILL, CYRIL R.
THE BUREAU OF CULTURAL AFFAIRS OF THE STATE DEPARTMENT HAS BEEN OBTAINING AN EVALUATION OF THE EXPERIENCE OF FOREIGN VISITORS TO THIS COUNTRY THROUGH PERSONAL INTERVIEWS, QUESTIONNAIRES, AND GROUP INTERVIEWS. THIS PROJECT EXPERIMENTED WITH THE LABORATORY METHOD IN THE BELIEF THAT INFORMATION OF GREAT RICHNESS COULD BE RETRIEVED. THE PARTICIPANTS WERE NINE ENGLISH-SPEAKING ASIANS, OFFICIALS IN COLLEGES IN INDIA AND NEPAL. THE DESIGN OF THE 3-DAY RESIDENTIAL PROGRAM INCLUDED AN EVENING OF HANDLING ANXIETIES, A DAY OF T-GROUP EXPERIENCE, A REVIEW OF THE TAPED RECORD OF THIS EXPERIENCE, AND A BRAINSTORMING SESSION WHERE ELEMENTS OF THEIR VISIT WERE ITEMIZED AND CATEGORIZED. THESE COMMENTS WERE THEN TAPED. CATEGORIES INCLUDED--PREPARATION FOR THE SEMINAR, SELECTION OF PARTICIPANTS, TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS, ACADEMIC PROGRAM, AND VISITS TO SCHOOLS, COLLEGES, AND HOMES. THE GROUP DISCUSSED ITEMS WHICH PROBABLY WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN FORTHCOMING THROUGH OTHER EVALUATION TECHNIQUES. THE OPENNESS AND RICHNESS OF COMMENTS SPOKE WELL FOR USING LABORATORY TRAINING AS A MEANS OF RETRIEVING THIS KIND OF INFORMATION. THIS DOCUMENT IS ALSO AVAILABLE FROM NATIONAL TRAINING LABORATORIES, 1201 SIXTEENTH STREET, N.W., WASHINGTON, D.C. 20036, FOR $1.50. (EB)
