TCELT welcomes Kazuhiro Kudo, Dokkyo University, Japan and Murdoch University, Australia who will present

Intercultural relationship development at university: A conceptual framework and empirical illustration

 For decades, studies in higher education have, on the one hand, substantiated the significance of intercultural interactions between international and domestic students, but on the other hand, reported widespread evidence of limited relationships between the two groups. Against this backdrop, this seminar aims to revisit current conceptualisations of intercultural relationships. A conceptual framework that captures the developmental nature of intercultural relationships and acknowledges the dynamic interactions between individual and environmental dimensions in this development is proposed. The framework is then illustrated by empirical data that were collected at two Japanese universities with significantly different policies and strategies for internationalisation (e.g. international student ratio, language of instruction, curriculum). The implications of the framework for future research and educational practices will also be discussed.

 About the presenter: Kazuhiro Kudo is a lecturer in the Faculty of Foreign Languages at Dokkyo University, Japan, and a board member of the Intercultural Education Society of Japan. He is also a PhD candidate in the School of Education at Murdoch University, Australia. His doctoral research focuses on the conceptualisation and empirical scrutiny of the development of positive intercultural relationships in university settings from an ecological and person-in-context (EPiC) perspective. The details of the EPiC perspective in relation to intercultural relationship development were presented in a recent publication in Educational Research Review (with Simone Volet and Craig Whitsed).
