reading reflection...

In my process of reviewing literature, came across the following today:

Many faculty members do not receive sufficient preparation to teach students from diverse populations in international branch campuses, let alone formal intercultural competency training (Smith, 2010; Wang, 2008).

The idea of transnational competence for faculty members is intriguing, and I'm not sure is discussed enough.  Are faculty receiving the preparation they need in order to be successful both academically and culturally in the setting they are in?  I'm curious what specific activities could be constructed to meet this gap - is it possible to do without actually being in the culture?
