Utilizing the Intercultural Effectiveness Scale (IES) to Enhance International Student Travel
Bates, Alicia; Rehal, Dalia Atef
International Research and Review, v7 n1 p44-53 Fall 2017
This paper highlights how one institution used the International Effectiveness Scale (IES) to support intercultural exploration and development for short-term undergraduate travel programs. Authors discuss utilization of the IES to explore students' intercultural development, how it can be applied to create an individualized action plan, and how it can identify intercultural goals during university-sponsored international travel opportunities. The strengths of the IES will be highlighted alongside a discussion of how intercultural learning and personal growth are central to the intercultural exploration process.
