Implications:

Knowledge/ confidence in incorporating China/ Chinese culture into curriculum significantly increased

More experience in dialogue with Chinese people, study of intercultural communication in addition to the study of Humanities may be needed to increase intercultural sensitivity

Limitations: Post-test IDI may have been administered too early – Year One
Unintended Results: Deeper faculty relations – interdisciplinary dialogues across campus
