Professional Integration: A Guide for Students from the Developing World.
Hood, Mary Ann G., Ed.; Schieffer, Kevin J., Ed.
This book is designed to help foreign students from developing countries make the transition from academic training in the United States to a professional career in the home country. The process of professional integration includes both cultural reentry and professional dimensions of reentry. Attention is directed to specific skills and knowledge acquisition, as well as to an overall view of transition as a part of the educational continuum. Although the information is geared specifically to the needs of developing world students, it may also be of interest to the international educator. Chapter titles and authors are as follows: "Introduction" (Kevin J. Schieffer); "Alumni Networking" (Kenneth A. Rogers); "The Scientist or Scholar Interacts: Communication and Interpersonal Relations in the Developing Countries" (Michael J. Moravcsik); "The Professional Integration of Women" (Mary Joy Pigozzi, Patricia W. Barnes-McConnell, Sally K. Williams); "Research and Publication" (Motoko Y. Lee, D. Y. Lee); "Developing a Resource Library" (Harold Borko, Eileen Goldstein); "Continuing Education for the Returned Professional" (Stephen C. Dunnett); and "Conclusion" (Mary Ann G. Hood). (SW)
