Student Motivation, Intercultural Competence and Transnational Higher Education: Uzbekistan, a Case Study
Sia, EngKee
Journal of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, v15 n1 p57-69 Feb 2015
This paper investigates some of the cross-cultural challenges faced by faculty members teaching transnational higher education in a foreign country. It employs the intercultural competence process model and attempts to provide some best practices that are already implemented in an international branch campus (IBC) in Uzbekistan. Hopefully, this sharing of practices will develop intercultural competence and better prepare transnational faculty members to be more efficient and effective in motivating students in transnational education programmes. Furthermore, apart from increased motivation for students, this important professional development initiative for faculty teaching staff may lead to improvement in learning outcomes over time.
