Abstract:These phases represent significant of LIS international doctoral students in terms of cognitive (thoughts), affective (feelings), and physical (actions) aspects. Mapping participants' concerns and challenges during their cross-cultural learning phases is used to identify interventions at the level of individual student, faculty, doctoral student community, program, and discipline that together provide a practical application to the research. Proposed interventions need to be holistically applied in conjunction with each other to promote mutual "two-way" learning that develops deep symbiotic connections between improvements in effectiveness of student learning and growth of the discipline to further internationalization.
