Summary:
"Written by a cross-cultural pair of authors, Ideas for Intercultural Education takes a critical look at present approaches to international education, focusing on the intercultural potential that it offers but mostly fails to deliver. The underlying premise of this profound, engaging book is that international education can be a transforming intercultural experience for hosts as well as visitors. Drawing on a review of the worldwide literature, especially studies from the United States, and two large interview programs with international students, the book dissects the obstacles and points the way to solutions in the classroom and beyond"-- Provided by publisher.
