Trainer Perceptions of Culture, Race and Ethnicity on Facilitation of Training Programs: A Global Perspective
Pesch, Mari Jo
Online Submission, Paper presented at the International Research Conference in the Americas of the Academy of Human Resource Development (Indianapolis, IN, Feb 28-Mar 4, 2007)
This qualitative study examined how trainers perceive and manage training programs with racially and ethnically diverse participants. Five themes emerged: global perspective, learning styles and culturally diverse participants, facilitation style, preparation for training with culturally diverse groups and, culturally sensitive training materials. Through experience, the trainers developed a global perspective, being literate about the cultural programming of diverse cultures, knowing how to manage the implications of having more than one culture in a learning event.
