Chapters cover the background and rationale for teaching exchanges; description and analysis of workshop activities designed to encourage successful encounters between individuals from different countries; and professional training for teaching exchanges. Summaries of the courses at each test program are provided, along with examples of specific exercises for both individual development and professional training. Recommendations, based on the experience of the test courses, are given on how to devise training for educational exchanges as a cohesive part of developing professionalism in teaching.
