Student Types, School Types and Their Combined Influence on the Development of Intercultural Understanding
Hill, Ian
Journal of Research in International Education, v5 n1 p5-33 2006
The article focuses on students' exposure to intercultural understanding in a number of educational settings. The effect of that exposure depends very much on the nature of the schools, the programmes they offer, and their location. It also depends on the "nature" of the students and how that affects their interaction with the school and its cultural context both within and without. The variables are many, the lines of influence are complex, and the whole process is full of nuances. Typologies of schools and students are used in an attempt to overcome these difficulties and arrive at some conclusions, including the need for an improved nomenclature of school types, which may form the basis for testing through future empirical research. (Contains 3 figures and 1 table.)
