The landscape of international education has changed significantly in the last ten years and our understanding of concepts such as ‘international’, 'global' and ‘multicultural’ are being re-evaluated.
Fully updated and revised, and now including new contributions from research in South East Asia, the Middle East, China, Japan, Australasia, and North America, the new edition of this handbook analyses the origins, interpretations and contributions of international education and explores key contemporary developments, including:
- internationalism in the context of teaching and learning
- leadership, standards and quality in institutions and systems of education
- the promotion of internationalism in national systems
This important collection of research is an essential resource for anyone involved in the practice and academic study of international education, including researchers and teachers in universities, governmental and private curriculum development agencies, examination authorities, administrators and teachers in schools.
"This edition will certainly help to improve education standards in many countries including Canada and the United States. Technology has linked all nations and this book will link all systems of higher education and research in the world for the benefit of all nations and students. Therefore, it is highly recommended for all academic libraries and major public libraries in all countries."
Hayden, Levy and Thompson should again be congratulated for bringing together such a diverse range of authors, not only increasing our understandings of research into international education, but providing a valuable resource for undergraduate and postgraduate students in a number of related fields
This book is an excellent jump-off point for every scholar and student who aims to enter the fascinating and highly controversial world of international education. With an impressive collection of world-leading scholars contributing up-to-date conceptual and empiric chapters together with editorial framing of the future directions and emerging trends, this is an essential guide to the field.
Hayden, Levy and Thompson have constructed a unique resource for anyone involved or interested in international education. Drawing on the collective wisdom of a virtual who’s-who in the area, the book provides advice, insights and challenges for methodologists, applied researchers, graduate students and international educators. If you’re interested in this increasingly important area, and we all should be, it’s a must have.
The revised Handbook is a ‘must have’ for anyone remotely interested in international education, international schooling and the impacts of globalization and internationalisation on education. Internationally renowned Hayden, Levy and Thompson, once again draw together the who’s who within the field to provide a global snapshot of policy, practices and philosophies inherent in international education. Educators across the globe should have this Handbook on their bookshelves as it offers a contemporary and analytical view of what is a fast paced, ever-changing field of study. I look forward to embedding this book within my postgraduate program.
The updated and richly extended Second Edition is an essential resource for both researchers and practitioners to grasp the globally increasing salience of international education—at ‘home’ and ‘abroad’—and its take up via a growing set of research streams. Broad in scope and rich in analysis, the Sage Handbook of Research in International Education commendably achieves its purposes.
The 2nd edition of the SAGE Handbook of Research in International Education is a welcomed and timely contribution to the field. Additional chapters in intercultural competence, organizational development and peace education as well as other significant revisions to the text continue to expand our views of the field and the lens that we use to define, describe and capture international education. I recommend this as a foundational text for graduate studies in international education as well as for K-12 schools and those exploring the field.
This volume is a very welcome update of the Handbook. Like the first edition, it offers a critical and analytical interpretation of many of the big debates in international school education, from international-mindedness to digital technology. These will be of interest to both teaching practitioners and academic researchers. What the editors and contributors have succeeded in doing admirably is taking these debates forward into the next decade, by raising issues which international schools must address. Such issues include educators’ roles in creating more socially inclusive societies, and the effects that a growing global elite and a neo-liberal focus on education standards will have on school systems worldwide.
International school teachers, PGCE (International) students, and educational researchers will all find this volume a crucial and valuable text.
