Confronting Issues of Diversity: Putting the Pieces Together with Programs at Home and Abroad.
McKay, Joane W.; And Others
This paper demonstrates how teacher education institutions can expand understanding of others and tolerance for differences by developing cross-cultural exchange programs in international settings and on the local level. The paper outlines the steps involved in establishing international student teaching programs at three different universities (University of Northern Iowa, Iowa State University, and University of Nevada-Las Vegas). The paper presents the personal stories of three faculty members who became involved in faculty exchange programs. Faculty members included a research associate, a visiting researcher, and the leader of a multi-institutional delegation, who traveled to Pacific Rim countries, each one for a different purpose. The paper then describes ways that these international exchange experiences can impact local communities. An appendix provides a sample application for international student teaching. (JDD)
