The Impact of Student Beliefs on the Effectiveness of Video in Developing Cross-Cultural Competence
Wilcox, Kristen Campbell
CALICO Journal, v27 n1 p91-100 Sep 2009
This action-research project was designed to assess how the use of video as a central instructional component impacts features of cross-cultural competence among adult ESL students. The study was conducted in a college-level intensive English language program in North America. Findings suggest that students' deeply embedded beliefs and values regarding their roles, expected behaviors, and what counts as language learning (i.e., grammar) influences the effectiveness of video-based instruction in developing cross-cultural competence.
