Developing Intercultural Practice : Academic Development in a Multicultural and Globalizing World Paperback / softback
Part of the SEDA Series series
Intercultural higher education has the potential to enable diverse students in diverse contexts to lead lives they have reason to value in a multicultural and globalizing world. The internationalization of higher education has become a significant site of change, driven by, and contributing to, globalization.
So much so that global higher education has the potential to increase collaboration or conflict across the borders of human diversity.
As educators seek to better understand and develop the ways in which our universities provide appropriate learning, Developing Intercultural Practice brings perspectives from international education communities together to provide clear guidance on the effective enhancement of these dimensions of academic practice. Exploring the emergence of the post-national university and situating academic development as critical practice, Developing Intercultural Practice considers how globally distributed, multicultural students and faculty, at home, overseas, and online, can develop reciprocal and collaborative learning.
Chapters cover areas such as: Internationalization, intercultural, and equitable practiceAcademic development and internationalizationDeficit modelling and the value of diversityNorms and rituals of academic culturesModelling intercultural academic developmentDeveloping Intercultural Practice is essential reading for faculty developers, leaders in learning and teaching, and all academics concerned to ensure their practice is relevant to their students and the worlds into which they will graduate.
