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

International education has expanded rapidly in the last decade, with more than a million foreign students studying annually in various countries such as Australia, China, the UK, and the USA. There are also over two million students studying in international schools all over the world. Many studies focus on teaching foreign students who come to these countries, but Teaching Abroad explores the difficulties educators face in the intercultural classroom when they teach overseas. The cross-cultural classroom is one of the most interesting developments of globalization and internationalization, but it is also one that requires awareness and sensitivity. Teachers abroad need to consider the cross-cultural classroom environment and the students themselves, local expectations about learning and attitudes to change, and resultant issues of identity.

Teaching Abroad focuses on North Americans who go to China and Europe, but also discusses attitudes and issues relevant to all of the international community. It notes the recent flourishing of international education and developments in educational structures and practice, and takes up the historical development of, and recent changes in, university education in China.
