ASSOCIATIVE AND DISSOCIATIVE RESPONSES IN THE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT

Asma Kumalasari

Abstract


This research is intended to investigate the social interaction strategies experienced by Thailand students in Maulana Malik Ibrahim State Islamic University, Malang. As the foreigner students, they may experience associative and dissociative responses to construct self adjustment with their educational circumstance. Associative responses refer to positive feelings, kinship, and cooperation among students when they are interacting with the local students. In contrast, dissociative responses show the negative feelings, disintegration or even conflict. Those different reactions can generally occur when the foreigner students have been introduced new norms or cultures by the local students that are not similar to theirs. After gathering and analyzing the data from the research subject, the research accentuates that the awareness on the self negative and positive responses can perpetuate the social tolerance between the Thailand students and local students that can support their academic achievement.

 

استكشف هذا البحث الطلاب من تايلاند الذين درسوا في جامعة مولانا مالك إبراهيم الإسلامية الحكومية مالانج حيث عانوا استجابة معاشرة وغير معاشرة في التكيف مع البيئة التعليمية. والاستجابة المعاشرة تشير إلى الاحساس الإيجابي والمقاربة والمعاونة بينهم وبين الطلاب الإندونيسيين. وبالعكس، فالاستجابة غير المعاشرة هي الاحساس السلبي والمفارقة والمخالفة بعد ما عرف الطلاب الأجانب المعايير والعادات حول الطلاب الداخلين. وبعد جمع البيانات من الطلاب من تايلاند، عرف أن الوعي بالاستجابة المعاشرة وغير المعاشرة يؤدي إلى التسامح بينهم، وذلك تظهر الانجازات الأكاديمية لهم.
