Teaching Intercultural Communication in the 1980's: Philosophy, Methods, and Evaluation Research.
Korzenny, Felipe; And Others
The teaching of intercultural communication has been characterized by a lack of a general paradigm for research; consequently, most texts are a potpourri of trends. The types of information that ought to be summarized and integrated into a coherent frame of reference are in the intrapersonal-interpersonal areas, group communication, and mass communication. As a result of the new world order, courses should pull evidence and thought together to provide the learner with a balanced view of today's world in which communication is a two-way process. In order to expand the teaching of intercultural communication in the 1980s, consideration must be given to the type of student that can be taught (including the nontraditional) and the end goals for teaching intercultural communication.
