About this book


This volume brought together scholars from various parts of the world to provide the readers with the latest research in transnational higher education and transcultural learning and teaching theories, as well as findings, best practices, and emerging trends. Practitioners will find best practice cases that they can cross-culturally adapt to develop, implement, and assess their own courses and programs. This book can serve as a good companion for faculty, administrators, and leaders in postsecondary institutions to plan, develop, implement, and evaluate programs and courses related to transnational higher education and learning. The book includes conceptual and theoretical frameworks that can inform studies to provide leaders and administrators in colleges and universities with research-based support to make decisions related to transnational education in a systemic way. Topics include, but are not limited to:

• Definitions of transnational higher education
• Theories on transnational higher education
• Delivery models
• Transcultural learning
• Critical pedagogy for transnational education and learning
• Transcultural consciousness in transnational education
• Inter-institutional/joint degree curriculum experiences
• Issues and topics in transnational higher education requiring further research
