UNITED STATES 


Two Workshops at the East-West Center
From July 13 to 22, 1994, the Program on Education and Training at the East-West Center in Honolulu, Hawaii, will offer a workshop for college and university faculty who wish to develop courses in intercultural and international topics. Participants will examine possible texts, interact with East-West Center staff familiar with a variety of courses, discuss issues with the authors of texts currently used in intercultural courses, share ideas with each other, and become familiar with exercises and simulations meant to introduce important concepts to students.


From August 8 to 12, 1994, cross-cultural trainers will have the opportunity to develop and expand their skills at another workshop offered by the East-West Center. Participants will interact with the developers of nine new training modules that have been developed for diverse audiences such as international business people, health care workers, counselors, mediators, and employees in the tourist industry. The developers have also produced modules of use for trainers working in areas that deal with ethnic identity, workplace diversity, the effectiveness of various training methods, ethical issues, and the importance of empathy.


For further information on both workshops, please contact Dr. Richard Brislin, East-West Center, Program on Education and Training, Honolulu, Hawaii 96848, USA (telephone: 808-944-7644; FAX: 808-944-7070).
