Cook, Jean, Ed.; Mitchner, Gary, Ed.
During a 4-week period in June and July of 1992, 10 faculty members from two-year colleges in Ohio traveled to Czechoslovakia, Poland, and Romania as part of the Building the Capacity for International Competitiveness (BCIC) program, a partnership of three Ohio community colleges. Focusing on gathering information to assist in the development of international curricula, program participants met with educators, social service workers, business persons, and United States Embassy personnel in Prague, Krakow, and Bucharest. This collection of reports by program participants contains the following: (1) "International Business Curriculum: Computer Technologies and Office Automation in Eastern Europe," by Linda Denney; (2) "Use of Technology in Eastern (Central) Europe and Business Opportunities," by Dan J. Heighton; (3) "Observed Marketing Activity in Czechoslovakia, Poland and Romania," by Russell N. Panas; (4) "Law in Eastern Europe," by Garnett McDonough; (5) "Adapting Organizational Behavior To Do Business in Poland and Czechoslovakia," by Madge M. Jenkins; (6) "Eastern Europe: Focus on Dietetics and Health Care," by Beatriz U. Dykes; (7) "Exposure to the Arts in and of Central Europe," by Judith Breisch Wise; (8) "Environmental Crisis: Czechoslovakia and Poland," by Lael Bradshaw; (9) "Challenges to Education in East Central Europe," by Jean Cook; and (10) "Preparing for Safe, Healthy and Efficient Travel to Eastern Europe," by Sue A. Zulauf. Recommendations concerning short-term travel abroad opportunities conclude the report. Appendixes include information on the participant selection process; application materials; participants' names and institutional affiliations; and information on the BCIC. (PAA)
