VanAlstine, Sharri K.; Holmes, Alena V.
Journal of Education and Training Studies, v4 n11 p194-205 Nov 2016
In higher education we aspire to prepare students to develop international-mindedness suited to become world citizens. The purpose of this study is (1) to investigate the development of international-mindedness during students' participation in music methods coursework and (2) to find out how international-mindedness is related to preference for world music. Results indicate that participants grew in the characteristics of international-mindedness as well as in their preference for a wide variety of world music examples by the end of the semester.
