This book seeks to understand how to internationalize curriculum without imperializing or imposing the old, colonial, and so-called first-world conceptualizations of education, teaching, and learning. The collection draws on the groundbreaking work of Dwayne Huebner in order to invite scholars into conversation with histories of curriculum studies and to posit them within it, opening up new spaces to work in and through curricular issues. This book will appeal to scholars, teachers, and students looking to reconceptualize international curriculum development and theory.

The Louisiana State University (LSU) Conference on the internationalization of curriculum studies was held April 27-30, 2000. As a result of this breakthrough meeting, the International Association for the Advancement of Curriculum Studies, the American Association for the Advancement of Curriculum Studies, and the movement within American curriculum studies known as «internationalization» all emerged. This book, which documents the conference proceedings, is an important one for courses in teacher education, foundations of education, and curriculum studies.

The drive to internationalize higher education has seen the focus shift in recent years towards its defining element, the curriculum. As the point of connection between broader institutional strategies and the student experience, the curriculum plays a key role in the success or failure of the internationalization agenda. Yet despite much debate, the role and power of curriculum internationalization is often unappreciated. This has meant that critical questions, including what it means and how it can be achieved in different disciplines, have not been consistently or strategically addressed. This volume breaks new ground in connecting theory and practice in internationalizing the curriculum in different disciplinary and institutional contexts. An extensive literature review, case studies and action research projects provide valuable insights into the concept of internationalization of the curriculum. Best practice in curriculum design, teaching and learning in higher education are applied specifically to the process of internationalizing the curriculum. Examples from different disciplines and a range of practical resources and ideas are provided. Topics covered include: why internationalize the curriculum?; designing internationalized learning outcomes; using student diversity to internationalize the curriculum; blockers and enablers to internationalization of the curriculum; assessment in an internationalized curriculum; connecting internationalization of the curriculum with institutional goals and student learning. Internationalizing the Curriculum provides invaluable guidance to university managers, academic staff, professional development lecturers and support staff as well as students and scholars interested in advancing theory and practice in this important area.

In this volume scholars from around the world consider the influential work of William F. Pinar from a variety of "conversations" his ideas have generated. The major focus is on the What, Why, and How of the word "reconceptualization," which involves engaging critically and ethically as public intellectuals with gender, class, and race issues theorized in a variety of disciplines. The book introduces Pinar’s seminal argument for curriculum to return to its root in the word currere (the running of the course of study) and its key concepts: autobiography as alternative to the denial of subjectivity in traditional curriculum studies, study, and place. Issues addressed include the ethics of study both of self and of the discipline of curriculum studies, the politics of presence, the curricular importance of entering the public sphere, the openness to complicating simple solutions, and the ethical dealing with alterity (the state of being other or different; otherness).

Information about internationalizing undergraduate education is presented. Data gathered from the membership of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) provide a profile of the degree of internationalization of these institutions. Additionally, major means of internationalizing the curriculum and the institution are identified, and practical guidelines are summarized to assist those who wish to know where and how to start to internationalize their campus or how to strengthen and refine that process. Survey results provide information on the extent of internationalization of the institutions using a five category classification scheme, the distribution of variables (e.g., the existence of planned international programs, study abroad, and program relations with the less developed countries), the seeking of grants and success rate, ethnic studies, institutional location and size, institutional operating budget, and requirements for graduation, foreign languages, and teaching English as a second language. The major curricular options that might be considered are: the infusion of nonwestern material, comparative approaches, issue-oriented approaches, area and civilization studies, intercultural communication, international development studies, and international studies major or minor. Establishing international education exchanges and funding arrangements are addressed. A list of 13 guidelines for AASCU institutions, a bibliography, a sample questionnaire, and information on funding sources are included. (SW)

Synoptic textbooks have played a major role in the intellectual advancement of U.S. curriculum studies. William F. Pinar argues for a new synoptic text, summarizing recent and relevant research in the academic disciplines toward the subjective and social reconstruction of the public sphere that is the school classroom. Such a reconceptualization of curriculum development enables teachers to complicate the classroom conversations they themselves will lead. Subsequent essays demonstrate the thematic and methodological forms such curriculum development might take.

This book is an exposition of how political, cultural, historical, and economic structures and processes shape the nature and character of curriculum landscapes globally. By developing theoretical connections and providing contextual background, Kumar explores how colonialism and imperialism, state-led ideological control, and the wave of neoliberalism and capitalism insidiously impact the process of curriculum development in different parts of the world. Kumar also underscores how intellectual movements such as Marxism and postmodernism have shaped curriculum theory in varied political and economic settings. By emphasizing the connections between and among diverse cultural and political conceptualizations of curriculum, this volume contributes to the internationalization of curriculum studies discourses.

Universities around the world have embraced internationalisation at the policy level, but struggle to put that policy into practice, particularly at the coalface of teaching and learning. To date, faculty voices have been largely silent in the literature on internationalising the curriculum. This book begins to address this gap. What does ‘internationalisation of the curriculum’ (IoC) mean in practice? How is it conceived, implemented and assessed within specific disciplines, locales and types of institutions? Why does it matter? These questions are addressed in this book by academics teaching in the fields of business, education and health, in a range of institutions across North America, the Middle East, Europe, East Asia and Australia. Reflecting critically on personal experience, through a scholarly engagement with current research, each chapter offers new ways of thinking about internationalising curricula in an increasingly interconnected world. The editors’ commentaries draw out the tensions between personal, disciplinary and institutional motivations, imperatives, and interests – in other words, tensions between the ideal and the do-able – which come into play in the practice of internationalising the curriculum, and offer insightful suggestions for future research and practice. Critical Perspectives on Internationalising the Curriculum in Disciplines: Reflective Narrative Accounts from Business, Education and Health is essential reading for academics and administrators invested in exploring new ways to better prepare students for life and work in the 21st century.

This important book explores the need to internationalize the business curriculum and to actively involve faculty in international studies and the global issues that affect the business world. Today's business students urgently need international perspectives and realistic knowledge of business culture, politics, and values from areas around the world. In spite of this need, business programs in the U.S. lag behind the international development of business practices and political economic trends. Internationalization of the Business Curriculum helps educators bridge this gap by presenting the cutting edge of theory, philosophy, and practical thinking and by bringing international perspectives into college business curricula. Internationalization of the Business Curriculum is filled with new ideas and innovative strategies for preparing students to face international competition in the business world. Some of the essential topics covered for educators are: elimination of dysfunctional management, political, and economic ideas currently used in the international sphere the proper role of Centers for International Business Education and Research (CIBER) programs pressing needs for faculty involvement in both international business research and teaching how to integrate up-to-date international information into the curricula and into the classroom accuracy and reliability of the U.S. media This timely book coordinates and integrates various teaching strategies and methods and presents them in a logical progression. It helps emphasize the need for business educators to internationalize their courses. The book also addresses the need to add cultural sensitivity to courses already in use and suggests that some established management theories are ethnocentric. In addition to evaluating existing gaps in business education, the book also describes practical ways to implement changes and new sensitivity to cultural issues in business programs. College faculty and administrators in business, economics, and politics will find valuable mission-based strategies for internationalizing their business curricula. By eliminating ethnocentric teaching models and integrating current international perspectives into business courses, Internationalization of the Business Curriculum helps educators prepare students to face our global business world successfully.

Globalization and the resulting internationalization of universities is driving change in teaching, learning, and what it means to be educated. This book provides exemplars of how the Communication discipline and curriculum are responding to the demands of globalization and contributing to the internationalization of higher education. Communication as a discipline provides a strong theoretical and methodological framework for exploring the benefits, challenges and meanings of globalization. The goal of this book, therefore, is to facilitate internationalization of the communication discipline in an era of globalization. Section one discusses the theoretical perspectives of globalism, internationalization, and the current state of the Communication discipline and curriculum. Section two offers a comprehensive understanding of the role, ways, and impact of internationalizing teaching, learning, and research in diverse areas of study in Communication, including travel programs and initiatives to bring internationalization to the classroom. The pieces in this section will include research-based articles, case studies, analytical reviews that exam key questions about the field, and themed pieces for dialogue/debate on current and future teaching and learning issues related to internationalizing the Communication discipline/curriculum. Section three provides an extensive sampling of materials and resources for immediate use in internationalization in communication studies; sample syllabi, activities, examples, and readings will be included. In sum, our book is designed to enable communication curriculum and communication courses in other disciplines to be internationalized and to offer different approaches to enable faculty, students, and administrators to incorporate and experience an internationalized curriculum regardless of time and financial limitations. This book is notable as a professional development resource for individuals both inside and outside the communication discipline who wish to incorporate a global perspective into their research and classrooms.

In current global politics, which positions China as a competitor to American leadership, in-depth understandings of transnational mutual engagement are much needed for cultivating nonviolent relations. Exploring American and Chinese professors’ experiences at the intersection of the individual, society, and history, and weaving the autobiographical and the global, this book furthers understanding of their cross-cultural personal awareness and educational work at universities in both countries. While focusing on life histories, it also draws on both American and Chinese intellectual traditions such as American nonviolence activism, Taoism, and Buddhism to formulate a vision of nonviolence in curriculum studies. Centering cross-cultural education and pedagogy about, for, and through nonviolence, this volume contributes to internationalizing curriculum studies and introduces curriculum theorizing at the level of higher education. Hongyu Wang brings together stories, dialogues, and juxtapositions of cross-cultural pathways and pedagogies in a powerful case for theorizing and performing nonviolence education as visionary work in the internationalization of curriculum studies.
