An Experiential Approach to Instruction in Intercultural Communication.
Warren, David; Adler, Peter
Increased interaction between people of different ethnic and cultural backgrounds demands new approaches to instruction in intercultural communication. Typically, four models of cross-cultural training are utilized to provide individuals with understanding of different cultural styles: the practical-functional approach, focusing on specific skill attainment; the cognitive-didactic approach, based on formal information transmission; the affective-personal approach, concerned with increasing self-awareness; and the author's preferred method, the experiential approach, an eclectic method which draws techniques from other models. Simulation games and exercises based on the experiential approach such as cross-cultural simulations, labeling tasks, cooperation exercises, personal inventory development, and non-evaluative listening experiences are outlined.
