Faculty Perspectives on International Education: The Nested Realities of Faculty Collaborations
Cooper, Joanne; Mitsunaga, Rikki
New Directions for Higher Education, n150 p69-81 Sum 2010
Even though faculty are obviously vital to the work of internationalizing academia, "surprisingly little work has been published that addresses the roles, responsibilities, and problems faced by faculty on an operational level" (Dewey and Duff 2009, p. 491). This chapter examines the motivations, supports, and barriers faculty are facing as they become involved in international collaborations at the program, course, and individual level. The authors have described these experiences as "nested realities" simply because faculty may find themselves involved in collaborations at the individual level, at the classroom level, and at the program level as they work to deliver educational opportunities for students in all these ways.
