Description

Giving voice to researchers, policy-makers and practitioners through a range of international case studies, Educational Approaches to Internationalization through Intercultural Dialogue interrogates processes of internationalization strategy and practice, from an educational and intercultural dialogue perspective.

Addressing this important, under-discussed area of internationalization – the role of intercultural dialogue – this book provides theoretical reflections and applicable, practical case studies that focus on:

  • Support for integration programmes for international and home students
  • Mobility programmes and initiatives which use an intercultural dialogue approach
  • The place of local languages and cultures in foreign language policies
  • The possibilities within a higher education context
  • The multilingual perspective
  • Student and staff perspectives

Focusing on teaching and learning, and exploring the latest research within the context of internationalization, Educational Approaches to Internationalization through Intercultural Dialogue is a must-read for anyone interested in, or currently involved in designing and implementing internationalization strategies within a higher education institution.

 


 

Reviews

By taking a resolutely educational approach, this book links internationalization to what should be one of its main dimensions but is too often neglected: intercultural dialogue. Through a combination of theoretical chapters and case studies from a broad range of countries, the book demonstrates multiperspectivity, a concept developed through the Council of Europe’s history education program. It recognizes that we may learn from the experience of others, without falling into relativity or accepting that "anything goes". Internationalization should encourage multiperspectivity, and this book makes the case convincingly.

Sjur Bergan, Head of the Council of Europe’s Education Department

The chapters in this book demonstrate that intercultural dialogue stands at the heart of the effort to internationalize higher education.

Wendy Leeds-Hurwitz, Director, Center for Intercultural Dialogue and Professor Emerita, University of Wisconsin, USA

The book is a valuable contribution to the field of internationalization and higher education and the role of intercultural dialogue in this endeavour.

Jonas Stier, Professor of Intercultural Studies, Dalarna University, Sweden

Holocaust Education - Paula Cowan & Henry Maitles - BOOK COVER ...... Paula Cowan is Senior Lecturer in Education, University of the West of Scotland

Overview

The book has been deemed essential reading for student teachers and recently qualified primary and secondary teachers, especially those with a specific responsibility for history, citizenship and religious education, and museum educators.

The Holocaust is a controversial and difficult teaching topic that needs to be approached sensitively and with an awareness of the complex and emotive issues involved. This book offers pragmatic pedagogical and classroom-based guidance for teachers on how to intelligently teach Holocaust education in a meaningful and age-appropriate way.

Key coverage includes:

  • Practical approaches and useful resources for teaching in schools
  • Holocaust education and citizenship
  • Holocaust remembrance as an educational opportunity
  • How to explore the topic of antisemitism in the classroom
  • International perspectives on Holocaust education

 

Praise for the book:

'This book makes a significant contribution to the development of education for a better world.'

- Ian Davies, Professor of Education, University of York

 

'This book gives a closely argued analysis of the nature of the Holocaust, and why it is so important that young people continue to study it, react to it, learn from it – it is a work of theory that critically informs our ideas of the purposes of education.'

- Alistair Ross, Jean Monnet Professor of Citizenship Education in Europe.
