This study used a mixed-methods approach to examine the intercultural sensitivity of one group of 8 Thai tutors (n=8) within their “internationalization at home” local environment at a university in Thailand while hosting a group of Japanese university students participating in a three-week study abroad program. Overall, the results showed that Thai tutors’ interaction confidence increased the most followed by marginal gains in engagement, attentiveness, and respect for cultural differences.
