Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the pedagogical strategies for cross-cultural collaboration. Two main research questions were: 1) How to better group the students for cross-cultural collaboration? 2) How to better design course assignments for cross-cultural collaboration? By comparing two collaborative groups which include college students from the United States and Taiwan, the researchers analyzed different grouping strategies and designs of assignment to see which group and what kind of assignment works better. The data analyzed were come from the results of the students’ learning satisfaction questionnaire, their reflection essays, and the grades of their course assignments. The primary findings showed that the students were very excited about the collaboration, but different time zones and the language barriers also caused some difficulties. Further data analysis is still ongoing, and the detailed findings and suggestions will be shared during the presentation.
