Development of a Cultural Controllability Scale | Seed Grant 2018

Dr. Hickman describes how he led an interdisciplinary team to create and validate a new assessment instrument. He discusses the theoretical frameworks of implicit theories of culture and attribution theory, tells the story of the item construction, and explains the statistical processes he used to validate the Cultural Controllability Scale.

Identifying Post-Pandemic Gaps In Intercultural Development During An Undergraduate Short-Term Study Abroad

Deficiencies in intercultural insight amongst American youth have led to an increased focus on globalization within institutions of higher education. To remedy this need amongst undergraduates, which has been exacerbated since the pandemic, short-term study abroads have been developed with the goal of enhancing these skillsets through application-based curriculum. New pedagogies have resulted so that students can be adequately exposed to true intercultural experiences along with tools to quantify this learning. This study identified and assessed intercultural learning gaps during a recent trip abroad.

A Review on Virtual Reality Skill Training Applications

From the abstract: "...[the authors] describe how VR training experiences are typically created and delivered using the current software and hardware...then discuss the challenges and solutions of applying VR training to different application domains, such as first responder training, medical training, military training, workforce training, and education. Furthermore, [they] discuss the common assessment tests and evaluation methods used to validate VR training effectiveness. [They] conclude the article by discussing possible future directions to leverage VR technology advances for developing novel training experiences."

Information Technology Undergraduate Students’ Intercultural Value Orientations and Their Beliefs about the Influence of Such Orientations on Teamwork Interactions

From the abstract: "This study used a mixed methods design to characterize computer and information technology undergraduate students’ cultural orientations and their cultural awareness in the context of teamwork experiences. The data for the study was collected in the form of a reflection assignment that was implemented during the first week of classes as a way to promote students’ cultural awareness and how that may play out in their teamwork interactions."

To Simulate or not to Simulate? Comparing the Effectiveness of Video-Based Training Versus Virtual Reality-Based Simulations on Interpersonal Skills Development

From the abstract: "The current study addresses the gap in the [Human Resource Developmen] HRD literature by conducting the first empirical research related to VR technology and its impact on training. The paper examines [virtual reality-based simulations] VRBS with a mixed methods research design within the interpersonal skills training context, comparing the effectiveness of this new medium to more traditional training platforms such as [video-based training] VBT."

Cultivating a Global Mindset in First Year Cybersecurity Students Through Internationalization of Curriculum


From the abstract: "In this study, we aim to understand the impact of IoC in a first-year cyber security course. 118 first-year cybersecurity students were provided training by the instructor about intercultural concepts. Upon completion of the training session, students were required to complete an online self-paced module known as Portable Intercultural Module (PIM). The PIM was focused on the various aspects of oral, written, and non-verbal communication and in what ways they differ across cultures, and how it can be misinterpreted if one is not aware of the cultural norm. Students were required to complete the module and participate in a final reflection assignment where they were given a scenario detailing conflict arising from cultural differences, and students were required to reflect based on the learnings from the PIM. We used a qualitative grounded theory approach to analyze the reflection responses of the students."
