International Faculty in Higher Education : Comparative Perspectives on Recruitment, Integration, and Impact Hardback
Edited by Maria Yudkevich, Philip G. Altbach, Laura E. Rumbley
In an interconnected and globally competitive environment, faculty mobility across countries has become widespread, yet is little understood.
Grounded in qualitative methodology, this volume offers a cutting-edge examination of internationally mobile academics today and explores the approaches and strategies that institutions pursue to recruit and integrate international teachers and scholars into local universities.
Providing a range of research-based insights from case studies in key countries, this resource offers higher education scholars and administrators a comparative perspective, helping to explain the impact that international faculty have on the local university, as well as issues of retention, promotion, salaries, and the challenges faced by these internationally mobile academics.
