Book Description

Providing the academic community with a robust and highly practical insight into the importance of implementing relationship building into the learning environment and experiences of all students, underpinned by current research, this innovative volume explores intercultural learning and critical pedagogy in the borderless university.

By revealing cutting edge theoretical perspectives and practice which can facilitate critical connections between diverse students, their learning, curriculum, each other, and their communities, Learner Relationships in Global Higher Education integrates academic and student perspectives on relationship development into academic practice. Drawing upon case studies and examples of good practice from across the globe, this book illustrates how practitioners in diverse contexts are designing student experiences in face to face and online contexts on and off campus to advance learner relationships. By situating this work in a critical pedagogy perspective, the book advances internationalisation in and for a global and multicultural world.

In the changing contexts of global higher education this book is a valuable tool for higher education researchers and practitioners at all stages of their career.
