Item description for Teaching Abroad: International Education and the Cross-Cultural Classroom by Gordon E. Slethaug...

"Teaching Abroad" addresses the question of moving abroad to teach in a cross-cultural university classroom. It discusses the recent flourishing of international education and developments in educational structures and practice, and traces the historical development of, and recent changes in, university education in China.This book explores systemic differences between communitarian and individualistic values as they affect the classrooms of the East and West, as well as in the students' emotional and intellectual sense of themselves and their education. Through research in the field and the author's own experiences in the international American Studies classroom, "Teaching Abroad" takes up the values of the teacher- and student-oriented classrooms and looks at creative ways to take advantage of each in terms of team-teaching, interdisciplinary inquiry, and group work. It also investigates the use of films and their adaptation from fiction in the interdisciplinary humanities classroom, and deals with various problems of assessment, including examinations, essays and plagiarism. Ultimately, the book connects these issues to the transformation of personal, familial, and national identities in this age of internationalization and cross-cultural education."Teaching Abroad" will appeal to foreign-bound university teachers who are interested in the historical and cultural conditions of a country and in need of practical advice about teaching abroad. It will specially be suitable for teachers who plan to teach in China. International teachers in primary and secondary schools will also profit from this exploration of the cross-cultural classroom and intercultural communication.
