Internationalization of the Higher Education Classroom: Strategies to Facilitate Intercultural Learning and Academic Success
Crose, Brian
International Journal of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, v23 n3 p388-395 2011
The number of students studying abroad is continuing to grow, which allows for intercultural learning to take place while forming cross-cultural relationships. This intercultural understanding plays a vital role as businesses begin operating in the global marketplace where cross-cultural relationships and understanding are needed. International students bring differing cultural experiences, expectations, and learning styles to the higher education classroom that allow for new perspectives to be introduced. How can faculty effectively leverage this cultural diversity in the classroom while addressing the academic needs of both the host and international students? Through effective teaching practices in a globalized classroom and an awareness of the cultural diversity present in the classroom, faculty members can provide learning opportunities, both academic and socially, that meets the needs of host and international students while preparing them for effective interactions in a globalized society.
