Internationalising Colleges of Education through the Dialectic of the Global and the Local? A Perspective and Possible Pathways from the American South
Stevick, E. Doyle; Brown, Kara D.
Intercultural Education, v27 n6 p493-504 2016
Most schooling disproportionately emphasises national affairs at the expense of more global and local phenomena. Students' resulting nation bias can be resituated both internationally and more locally by integrating internationalisation policies with place-based education approaches, which help to illuminate these different levels and, particularly, the extensive and complex interconnections between them. This task is particularly critical for colleges of education, where higher education internationalisation policies have the greatest potential to expand the perspectives of public school students. This article uses three cases drawn from the authors' teaching and local service initiatives to illustrate the educational potential for future teachers and school administrators of working to broaden students' perspectives through a "dialectic of the global and the local".
