Abstract

A case study was conducted to examine the significance of intercultural
communication awareness in a tertiary education context. There are two categories of
participants for questionnaire and interview: staff members and students at the
University of Tasmania. As all staff members/students at the University of Tasmania
were directly or indirectly involved in the intercultural life of the university, both
administrative and academic staff members/domestic and international students were
invited to participate in this study. Participants were invited to participate in informal
interviews as well as a questionnaire to present their views on intercultural
communication and how it affects their interaction with people from different cultural
backgrounds. The paper discussed the results of this study in terms of personal
development, intercultural identity, and professional effectiveness.
