Globalised world and mobility: some implications for intercultural education

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In the paper it is emphasized that in a globalised world intercultural experiences become almost integral part of daily routines of people of almost all ages, and therefore almost change the culture as more traditional societies used to know it. Interculturalism is defined as an active process that implies interaction among members in a culturally diverse environment. Therefore educators have to start to consider the possibilities to help students (in this paper the context of higher education is analysed) to reflect on their cultures, their cultural identities, and the perception of other people, whom they will be meeting more often in a globalised world. Therefore in this paper results of an empiric study on the students opinions what are their experiences and feelings in other countries and cultures, what they feel they learnt living abroad, are presented.
