"In this new edition of Learning Across Cultures, the editors note that the 'significance of doing the work has, if anything, increased since the first two editions were conceived and released.' How very true that is. The editors have responded with a broader based compendium of theory and practice that is useful for teachers, trainers, advisers, and facilitators in an array of intercultural learning contexts. Usable as a reader or a reference, this edition can help any practitioner who wants to improve intercultural education or training." —Gary Althen, Retired Director of the Office of International Students and Scholars at the University of Iowa
"Assuming a global context, Learning Across Cultures: Locally and Globally highlights theoretical frameworks, practical applications, and recommendations for educators working in diverse environments, providing a much-needed resource in today’s turbulent times." —Darla K. Deardorff, executive director of the Association of International Education Administrators
"It is refreshing indeed to find a book that so effectively bridges theory and practice, while remaining stimulating and provoking through the provision of useful practical examples alongside discussion of foundational research and advanced theories and concepts. The themes it explores and the resources it provides are both contemporary and timeless. This is a book written for educators who are curious about a complex phenomenon that they will experience every day. It has the potential to change the way educators think about their students, themselves, and the work they do. It delivers on its promise to illustrate that effective learning across cultures, while complex, is not only possible but essential in today’s world." —Betty Leask, pro vice-chancellor teaching and learning, La Trobe University
