Experiences in promoting an intercultural perspective in an educational technology program

Dawson Kara, Richard E. Ferdig

Abstract


Technology is a driving force behind why intercultural education and intercultural communication are important goals for the 21st century. As such, tomorrow’s educational technology leaders must be well-versed in these areas. In this article we describe an international grant designed to build a transatlantic doctoral community focused on educational technology, highlight the impact of this grant on an educational technology program in the United States and provide suggestions for others interested in enculturating educational technology doctoral students into a community of intercultural practice. Readers will be particularly interested in our struggles (and potential solutions) related to student exchanges and our curriculum for courses designed to elevate intercultural education in our program.
