Strengthened Culture Competency of Graduate Students by Concomitantly Using Multiple Social Media Sites

Project Lead: 
Linda A. Landon
Project Description: 

Higher education has begun to use social media for instruction, making social media effects on cultural competency to be an important educational issue. The problem underlying the current study was that the relationship between graduate students’ areas of academic study, geographical region of origin, and use of social media sites and their cultural sensitivity aspects was unclear. This problem was important because the literature reflected inconsistent findings about the relationship between graduate students’ characteristics and their types of cultural sensitivity.

Strengthening Culture Competency of Graduate Students Through Social Media: A Quantitative Non-Experimental Study

Project Lead: 
Linda A. Landon
Project Description: 

In an era of expanding globalization and social media, the idea of cultural sensitivity has not been addressed. Cultural research has evolved from an anthropological, national, and business organization focus and to an individual focus. The design of this study is a quantitative, non-experimental, correlation research design. The problem is the extent to which graduate students’ demographics in social media including ethnicity, age, gender, and language are related to their cultural sensitivity is unclear.
