Symposium: Strategic Scaling Up 2: Intercultural Learning in the Language Classroom

PDF versions of PowerPoint presentations for this panel will be added to this post as they become available. The first to be available is Paper #4 by Valentina Concu and Jessica Rohr.
 
Symposium: Strategic Scaling Up 2: Intercultural Learning in the Language Classroom
Sat Jan 25 2020, 2:30pm–4:30pm, Salon J

This symposium explores how world language instructors effectively integrate intercultural learning into their curricula and establish productive collaboration with intercultural specialists. Through both presentations and activities, it provides examples of best practices for implementing an intentional intercultural perspective in the on-campus, service-learning, and study abroad language curricula.

Paper 4: Increasing Communicative Effectiveness through History: An Intercultural Competence Perspective, Valentina Concu and Jessica Rohr (Purdue University)

This paper examines if and how beginning and intermediate German textbooks use historical topics to promote learners' intercultural competencies. It also explores how the textbook topics can be redesigned by using media and digital tools to improve learners' intercultural communicative competence and awareness of their own and German history.

Paper 4: Tasks and Directives for Intercultural Communication in Short-Term Study Abroad, Lori Czerwionka and Michael Bittinger (Purdue University)

Questionnaire results and specific tasks and directives used to encourage intercultural communication will be shared.

CERCLL 2020 Conference presentation: "Mentored Intercultural Learning Courses for Semester Abroad" - Daniel C. Jones

Symposium: Strategic Scaling Up 1: Intercultural Learning Beyond the Classroom
Fri Jan 24 2020, 4:00pm–6:00pm, Catalina Ballroom / Salon K (livestream)

Paper 3: Mentored Intercultural Learning Courses for Semester Abroad, Daniel C. Jones (Purdue University)

This presentation furthers prevailing research asserting that facilitated intervention provides greater gains in intercultural development (IDI) scores compared to no intervention during long-term study abroad programs. Additionally, differences in intercultural growth resulting from individual-mentored and group-mentored interventions are discussed in regard to curricula, methods, and approaches for each intervention type.

CERCLL 2020 Conference presentation: "The Global Science Partnerships Learning Community: The First Six Years" - Laura Starr

Symposium: Strategic Scaling Up 1: Intercultural Learning Beyond the Classroom
Fri Jan 24 2020, 4:00pm–6:00pm, Catalina Ballroom / Salon K (livestream)

Paper 2: The Global Science Partnerships Learning Community: The First Six Years, Laura Starr (Purdue University)

Drawing on theories of intercultural development, this study uses mixed assessment methods to analyze intercultural learning outcomes for six cohorts of first-year students in a STEM learning community. Data suggest that proximity plus attention to learners’ developmental stage(s) can significantly increase intercultural competence for both international and domestic students.

CERCLL 2020 Conference presentation: "What Do You Want Students to Learn?" - Aletha Stahl and Kris Acheson-Clair

Symposium: Strategic Scaling Up 1: Intercultural Learning Beyond the Classroom
Fri Jan 24 2020, 4:00pm–6:00pm, Catalina Ballroom / Salon K (livestream)
 

Paper 1: “What Do You Want Students to Learn?”: Faculty-Led Programs, Aletha Stahl and Kris Acheson-Clair (Purdue University)

Requiring all faculty to incorporate intercultural learning outcomes in their study away/abroad programs requires both structural support and recognition that faculty control the curriculum. This presentation discusses ways of striking this balance and presents evidence that backwards design impacts student achievement of learning outcomes.
