Experiential Activities for Intercultural Learning

H. Ned Seelye
Authors:
H. Ned Seelye

The need for new approaches, methods, and techniques in cross-cultural training and intercultural education are virtually insatiable, especially for experiential activities. The emphasis in this book is on activities that foster the development of intercultural awareness and cross-cultural sensitivity, helping learners understand some of the principal dimensions of intercultural communication, cross-cultural human relations, and cultural diversity. The selections include simulations, case studies, role plays, critical incidents, and individual and group exercises. A number address relatively complex workplace issues; others focus on intercultural dynamics in educational contexts. Some are printed here for the first time; others are culled from less accessible sources. They range from basic introductory activities to those that facilitate the exploration of intercultural issues in significant depth. In an introductory essay, Sheila Ramsey, an experienced scholar and trainer, examines the nature of intercultural training and lays out a conceptual framework for assessing its effectiveness. The rest of the book is made up of activities organized around six facets of intercultural contact: cultural differences for beginners, understanding oneself as a cultural person, the intercultural perspective, working across cultures, cross-cultural "foul-ups," and returning home. Each section opens with an introduction, followed by activities. Each activity includes, at a minimum, objectives, audience, materials required, setting, time required, and procedure for facilitation. Many of the activities include handouts or illustrations. This book will be especially valuable for trainers and educators who want to further ground their work in a solid theoretical base and at he same time augment their resources to expand heir repertoire.

Intercultural Sourcebook Vol 1

Monica Mumford, Sandie Fowler
Authors:
Monica Mumford, Sandie Fowler

Nothing could be more timely than the publication of this revised edition of the Intercultural Sourcebook. The 1979 edition reflected the new field of cross-cultural training, at that time searching for focus and direction. This new edition embodies the progress made in that search, systematically defining the field's parameters and offering concrete examples of the methods and techniques currently employed by its practitioners. Intercultural Sourcebook will be a "must have" not only for educators and trainers concerned with intercultural learning or the development of cross-cultural skills, but for anyone who wishes to comprehend fully what these processes involve. Comprehensive in scope, the book examines both the principal methods used in cross-cultural training and a selection of specialized techniques and instructional devices. In this, the first of a two-volume set, six methods are examined in twenty articles: role plays, contrast-culture training, simulation games, critical incidents, the cultural assimilator, and case studies. In each, a lead article traces the development and use of the particular method; several articles then offer specific applications. Intercultural Sourcebook provides both a framework for conceptualizing the training methods covered and resources for applying them in one's own work. Each article is written by an experienced trainer; in fact, the author list comprises the core of a who's who in the field. Thorough, practical, and enlightening, this book will define the field for years to come.
