    Instructor interview for Place-Based WAC/WID writing instruction in Management, clip 13 of 13
    ( 2015) Place-based WAC/WID Hui ; Bhawuk, Dharm ; Henry, Jim ; Bost, Dawne
    Brief excerpt from interview: Research on intercultural sensitivity: I theorized that people in a multicultural place like Hawaiʻi will be more sensitive, but compared to people who have travelled, they turned out not to be as sensitive, so there is a limitation to this . . . we are all ethnocentric, so even in a multicultural society you can still become ethnocentric.

    Brief excerpt from interview: Whenever a community had problems, people would get together and discuss what happened, and nobody left until everything was resolved . . . over the last twenty years I've done some research and writing also on Hawaiʻi . . . in one of our papers we discovered how . . . basic elements of culture . . . were used to basically take over this land . . . and then they lost their language, because we made that language illegal.

    Brief excerpt from interview: The only time Hawaiʻi sort of officially surfaces is when I talk about there are indigenous management practices, and I always mention ho'oponopono, as a method that was used, and I don't even want to call it conflict resolution method because that's not what it is, it's making things pono, making things right, and goes actually beyond conflict resolution, but then I also like to tell my students 'and this is not practiced by any businesses in townʻ . . . if I really only focused on management practices being used, then none of the Hawaiian practices show up, except saying Aloha . . . and wearing Aloha attire.

    Brief excerpt from interview: But those who don't do well on multiple choice, I do tell them you can write a ʻwhat I learnedʻ paper . . . if that's what you want to do . . . you can write about all these concepts . . . the reason I started doing what I learned was that if I say . . . you should take charge of your learning, then why am I testing you? . . . so this should be a skill audit for you: you can look at it ten years later . . . and see 'here are the skills I have learned, here are the skills I still have not learned.'

    Brief excerpt from interview: Hawaii ʻis so unique, one of my students last semester was collecting data . . . in her Caucasian sample was the description of one of the participants as ʻhardcore localʻ . . . I thought she needs a variety of samples, this place is very deceptive, you just cannot just look at a person and say 'that's caucasian.ʻ
