|Abstract:||This thesis was a preliminary application of the concept of intercultural communication competence to assess instructors' communication with diverse student populations as a means of identifying successful classroom practice from which to trace back to multicultural teacher education programs. Twenty-five instructors and 247 of their students participated. Instructors' self-reports and their students' perceptions of instructors' intercultural communication competence were obtained along with instructors' degree of formal training and informal experiences relevant to teaching! communicating with diverse student populations.
Overall, both instructors and students reported moderate levels of intercultural communication competence regarding instructors' communication. There was a positive association between instructors' formal training and students' perceptions of instructors' intercultural communication competence but not with instructors' self-reports. There was a positive association between instructors' informal experiences and instructors' self-reports of intercultural communication competence but not with students' perceptions. Results indicate intercultural communication competence can successfully be applied to assess instructors' communication.
