Description

Like many other forms of knowledge, cultural intelligence (CQ) is acquired or learned. Our study uses the CQ scale as a means of measuring growth in cultural intelligence in students participating in a two-month home-stay in Guatemala. Based on this data, we selected students to interview as a way of discovering specifically in what areas they grew the most and why they think they experienced CQ growth. As a result of these interviews, we have pinpointed three key areas of growth that will be the focus of this post presentation: a shift from extrinsic to intrinsic motivation, a rejection of stereotype-based knowledge of culture, and linguistic growth that empowers students to engage culture.
