During the presentation, findings from an action research program on a 28-day-long global training program entitled Higher Education Policy Design and Development will be shared and discussed. The training program was organized and delivered by Dr. Hyangsuk Bu as an intercultural communication model and was evaluated highly effective by participants.
The objective of the program was to introduce the model of the Korean higher educational system to 12 government officials serving Ministries of Education of 7 other countries. As the final products of the program, the participants designed action plans that would be applicable in their home countries. This study developed an intercultural communication model to ground the training process, which ultimately enabled trust building and sustainable relationship through authentic experiences.
