Overview

Transnational Competence extends James Rosenau’s path-breaking work on the global skill revolution. In this timely new contribution, Koehn and Rosenau develop their transnational-competence (TC) framework and demonstrate the promise of its application across six professional fields of higher-education preparation: teacher education, engineering, business management, social work, sustainable-development (encompassing agricultural sciences, public administration, and natural-resources management), and medicine/health. Aimed principally at higher-education leaders and graduating professionals throughout the world, Transnational Competence focuses on the skills that tomorrow’s practitioners will need to deal with what the authors term horizon-rising transboundary challenges.

After exploring emerging twenty-first century challenges from the perspectives of specialists in the six professional fields, the authors focus on tailored curriculum suggestions for educating TC-prepared teachers, engineers, business managers, social-justice workers, sustainable-development practitioners, and physicians/other health-care providers. Chapter 11 presents valuable learning activities that are specifically related to each professional TC curriculum. With reference to resources, administrative support, faculty buy-in, and student interest, the concluding chapter shows how the inevitable obstacles to transforming professional programs in a TC direction can be overcome. Under one cover, Transnational Competence offers university educators around the world useful ideas for enhancing and transforming a range of professional programs so that graduates will be prepared with the skills needed to manage emerging challenges that connect populations, ecosystems, and fields of study.
