Learning Across Borders

Perspectives on International and Transnational Higher Education

Editor(s): Amy Hodges, Leslie Seawright

Book Description

Universities everywhere are witnessing growing numbers of students in cross-border, international, and transnational spaces. This trend has resulted in many educators revising their curricula, pedagogical approaches, and assumptions about what it means to provide a university education in the 21st century. This edited collection contributes to a growing body of research in international and transnational education by looking back and looking forward at globalisation’s impact on higher education.

The authors in this volume provide a solid base of theoretical knowledge and practical applications to readers in similar situations. With growing numbers of students and teachers moving – physically and virtually – across international borders, their expertise is needed. The collection contains authors from Germany, Ghana, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, and the United States of America, and from varied disciplines such as education, English language teaching, higher education administration, indigenous studies, literature, mathematics, rhetoric and composition, and writing centre studies.
