One of the best and most enjoyable courses I have taught was during the 1989 SICE Program in Japan. My wife and I led that program with 14 students. It was a delight to teach those students about Japan through the lens of cross-cultural psychology and to engage with them in the process of putting together the complex, multi-dimensional "jigsaw puzzle" that is an understanding of another culture. The students lived with host families, were teaching assistants in junior high English classes, and experienced many aspects of Japanese culture, ranging from the geological context to Shinto traditions to contemporary renditions of koto music. Throughout those months, my role included being a guide and interpreter as they both deepened their understanding of Japanese culture and gained a new perspective on their own society. We held classes twice a week and they shared their experiences through a journal to which I responded. We did field trips and participated in group events such as festivals, Noh and Kabuki performances, climbing a mountain and much more. Their learning was holistic and represented the best ideals of liberal education. One of the most satisfying aspects of that course is the fact that it represented only the beginning of a life-long friendship with and among those students. My wife and I have kept in touch with nearly all of them, attending their weddings, watching them pursue a wide variety of careers, seeing their children growing up, and visiting with them.
