Intercultural chameleons or the Chinese way? Chinese students in Western art and design education
Abstract:Globalization is dramatically increasing numbers of international students in UK art and design institutions. Education as a primary source of enculturation can play an important part in bridging cultural differences; however, without awareness of the different learning cultures of Western and Confucian Heritage Cultures there is a danger of stereotype, prejudice and barriers to learning. There is a lack of research into intercultural communication in the creative fields; this article considers whether art and design institutions can adopt and adapt best practice from other fields of education in order to provide intercultural learning cultures that recognize both differences and common ideas of education and creativity.
