A Review of Literature: What Is an Ideal Internationalised School?
Educational Review, v68 n3 p306-321 2016
This article presents the findings of a literature review conducted from 2005 to 2013 on the elements involved when a school internationalises. In the past there has been predominant focus on the teachers or the international students at schools with little emphasis on a whole school approach to internationalisation. This review considers the body of literature on internationalisation and synthesises the findings using a stage play metaphor to construct the ideal performance of a school-wide approach to internationalising. The first act by the school leadership is that of organising and managing the school, the second act involves the international student and their experience, and the third and final act is that of the teachers and their pedagogy. This literature review presents all the elements through the acts, key roles and essential scenes for the best performance of a school for internationalisation.
