FULBRIGHTER’S INTRODUCTION TO THAILAND: 
ADVICE AND COMMENTARY

Text:  Prof. Dr. Scott McNabb, College of Education, The University of Iowa

Commentary:  Porntip Kanjananiyot, Executive Director, Thailand-U.S. Educational Foundation (Fulbright)

 

The following essay has been written to provide orientation thoughts for American scholars who are embarking on a Fulbright assignment in Thailand.  He hopes that it will provide insights that will help Fulbrighters to understand, appreciate, and engage fully with their academic colleagues and other Thais they will encounter.  It is not meant only as a “survival” guide; our hopes are far greater than that.  It is written to help individuals maximize the cross-cultural gift that they have been given—to live and work among the Thai people for a significant period of time.

 

This essay is based on his 19 trips to Thailand which span the period 1968 to 2011, from Peace Corps teaching at Thammasat University through two Fulbrights and multiple other teaching, evaluation and research trips.  he has taught International Education and qualitative research classes at The University of Iowa since 1979.
