Showcasing recent, multi-institutional research related to global learning, this book expands the context of global learning to show its antecedents and impacts as a part of the larger higher education experience. Chapters look at recent developments such as short-term, off-campus, international study and certificate/medallion programs, as well as blended learning environments and undergraduate research, all in the context of multi-institutional comparisons. Global learning is also situated in a larger university context. Thus, there is a growing need for bridging across disciplinary and administrative silos, silos that are culturally bound within academia. The gaps between these silos matter as students seek to integrate off- and on-campus learning, and it is up to the academy to mind those gaps.

"This opening volume of the Elon University Center for Engaged Learning & Stylus Series on Engaged Learning & Teaching covers more than international education. The authors define 'global engagement' broadly enough to make the book a kind of master key for unlocking many High-Impact Practices, and making full use of powerful educational experiences like encounters with difference, the dissonance of unfamiliar settings, and working through ambiguity. By organizing chapters with consistent attention to context, methodology, and application, the contributors have made this an easy book to use for practitioners at a range of levels and backgrounds. What results is more than a collection of perspectives on global engagement; it’s a role model for using reliable data, continuous faculty professional development, and rigorous learning outcomes assessment to tackle some of our most vexing questions."

Ken O’Donnell, Vice Provost - California State University – Dominguez Hills
