We are Not in Kansas Anymore: Case Studies in Teacher Candidate Development of Cultural Competency through Short-term Study Abroad
Dr. Elodie Jones, Fort Hays State University
Dr. Betsy Crawford, Fort Hays State University
Dr. Chris Jochum, Fort Hays State University
This session will share the results of an ongoing study abroad program in Costa Rica in which teacher candidates engaged in personal and academic experiences through a language academy and host families. The researchers utilized a mixed approach in which they gleaned information through individual ratings and reflections from the Intercultural Effectiveness Scale and combined this with students’ personal journals, focus groups, personal interviews and personal artifacts.
