Internationalizing the Campus through an Intercultural Assignment
Driskill, Gerald W.
Communication Teacher, v21 n1 p6-11 Jan 2007
The topic of international education continues to gain the attention of educators. However, the American Council on Education (ACE) spotlights a slow response from universities to make intercultural learning a critical part of the undergraduate education process. Nonetheless, intercultural components are common not only in intercultural communication courses, but in basic courses, interpersonal, public speaking, nonverbal, as well as speech communication courses in secondary schools. Furthermore, universities as well as K-12 schools often engage students in international festival events to improve awareness of the global community. This assignment attempts to address the concerns found in the ACE report by providing a template for engaging students in taking their intercultural assignments beyond the classroom to address the learning needs of other students and community members. The objective of this assignment is to develop poster presentations designed to engage the campus and community in order to enhance their intercultural awareness and knowledge.
