The Incorporation of Internationalization into Adult and Higher Education Curricula.
Griffin, Peggy Ann
This paper examines modern theory and practice for indications of how adult and higher education can become more international in scope. First, the paper provides definitions of important words, such as "curriculum,""internationalization," and related terms. The next section focuses on theories of educators who have made inroads in internationalizing curriculum. The last section examines the connections between culture, communication, and internationalization. The discussion concludes by encouraging the internationalization of curriculum and creation of new models of education and growth in research. (Contains 24 references.) (KC)
