Cross-Cultural Teaching and Learning for Home and International Students: Internationalisation of Pedagogy and Curriculum in Higher Education (Paperback)Janette Ryan (editor)
- We can order this
Cross cultural teaching and learning for home and international students maps and discusses the increasing internationalisation of teaching and learning at universities around the world. This new phenomenon brings both opportunities and challenges, as it introduces what can be radically different teaching, learning and assessment contexts for both students and staff. This book moves beyond the rhetoric of internationalisation to examine some of the more complex issues for practitioners, researchers, students and those working in transnational or non-Anglophone contexts. It recognises that although universities around the world enthusiastically espouse internationalisation as part of their mission, there is currently little information available about carrying out this vision in terms of pedagogy and curriculum at a practical level. This book fills that gap comprehensively, organising its information around four main themes:
New ways of teaching, learning and assessing: Challenges and opportunities for teaching practice, student engagement and participation, assessment and supervision of learning.
New ways of designing and delivering curriculum: Internationalising the curriculum for all students within `home' and `abroad' contexts.
New ways of thinking and acting: Developing the global citizen, intercultural learning and respectful dialogue, responding to student diversity and equity, enhancing graduate employability and future life trajectories.
New ways of listening: Discovering and responding to new or unfamiliar voices among students and staff, embracing `other' academic and intellectual traditions.
Illustrated by a wide range of examples from around the world, this book brings together contemporary work and thinking in the areas of cross cultural teaching and internationalisation of the curriculum.

"Anyone looking closely at pedagogy and curriculum issues in transnational or non-Anglophile higher education contexts in particular needs to jump feet first into this book. The book presents and explores a wide range of inter-related complex issues concerning cross-cultural teaching and learning. For all educators working to internationalise teaching, learning policy and practice, this collection of authoritative writing offers pragmatic strategies and useful research findings to enable informed debate, consideration of the ideas and challenges of internationalisation and guidance on implementation strategies. The book provides the basis for acting with confidence in this challenging field".- John Senior, Gifted Education International
