Developing Intercultural Practice - Academic Development in a Multicultural and Globalizing World

Killick D., Developing Intercultural Practice - Academic Development in a Multicultural and Globalizing World, Routledge 2017, ISBN: 9781138289895, Pages: 232

This book explores how internationalisation of higher education has become a significant site of change, driven by, and contributing to, globalisation. As educators seek to better understand and develop the ways in which universities provide appropriate learning, the authors strive to bring 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, this volume 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 practice; academic development and internationalization; deficit modelling and the value of diversity; norms and rituals of academic cultures; and modelling intercultural academic development.
