Centre for Global Higher Education

Teaching practices can mean two things:

  1. the pedagogic strategies that lecturers use to disseminate scientific knowledge
  2. a ‘teaching of practices’, which is best described as a socialisation process that enables students to internalise the skills they need to succeed in a new academic, institutional and disciplinary culture.

‘Teaching Practices in a Global Learning Environment’ works with both understandings, using the concrete practices of programme design, academic literacy, course syllabi and multicultural teams to explore how academic staff experience and shape the transformation that is ‘international higher education’.

The analysis of global higher education in this book is grounded in the actual experiences narrated by 68 international educators. 

The voices of the teaching staff is placed at the centre of the argument, which yields a picture of heterogeneous practices rather than a standardised ‘how to do’ global higher education. 

The book brings together practices and structures in a global ‘practice-scape’, underlining connections between pedagogic action undertaken by individual teachers and conditions in other educational sites/policy levels.
