Overview

With increasing numbers of international students, this book explores how best to broaden the approaches to learning and teaching in the higher/further education environment. Rather than seeing internationalization as a problem to be addressed, this text embraces the opportunities for the enrichment of the learning environment through a values-driven approach to internationalization.

Taking a positive and practical approach to internationalizing higher education, the book considers a range of questions about how to bring in global perspectives to the learning environment and education provision. Packed with case studies and vignettes from around the globe, the book proposes that the international student lies at the heart of the university as a source of cultural capital and intentional diversity, enriching the learning experience, enhancing staff experience and building a more powerful learning community.
