Thank you very much for your interest in taking part in this survey.
The survey is targeted to individuals who do intercultural work. For the purposes of this study, “intercultural work” is defined as work that focuses on the subject of culture and aims to facilitate communication and interaction across cultures. It may include but is not limited to such activities as teaching, training and consulting.
The results of this survey will give you (and the people you work with) the following information:
- Who are we? A profile of the background, education and activities of intercultural workers
- How do we work? Awareness of the theories and tools which practitioners currently use in their work
- Why are we working in this field? What are the motivations of professionals in the intercultural field? How do we feel about our field?
- How has this field developed? A comparison of related surveys from 2004, 2008 and this one will be done to show the development the intercultural field has taken.
The survey will take approximately 15-20 min to complete. You do not need to answer each question, however, we'd very much appreciate if you could add value to our research by answering our questions and pressing "DONE" at the end of the survey. Please feel free to elaborate at any given point because your answers will help paint a more accurate picture of those involved in intercultural work. Your answers will be recorded anonymously; we are not saving IP addresses.
If you are interested in finding out about the results of the survey, please leave your e-mail as per the instructions after the survey. We will keep your request for those results separate from your survey responses.
Thank you very much for your time. We really appreciate your help in surveying the intercultural field. We encourage you to share this link with colleagues.
