A House Where All Belong: Redesigning Education Abroad for Inclusive Excellence

This book brings together a diverse group of scholars and practitioners to build bridges between the existing literatures on advising approaches, inclusive pedagogies, and inclusive excellence to situate education abroad within the broader context of inclusive excellence within higher education to answer the question:

How can we integrate inclusive practices to expand the outcomes and benefits of education abroad for all students, with the goal of achieving inclusive excellence?

By connecting this scholarship with promising practices in the field and the guidance found in the Standards of Good Practice, practitioners in education abroad and beyond will find this collection of readings both actionable and inspiring for their work to deepen the impact of education abroad by means of the principles of inclusive excellence.

EAIE Community Summit: Thriving in complexity | March 8 – 9, 2023

“Life is messy.” This simple sentence captures a profound truth about the world we operate in today as international educators: complexity is everywhere around us. Student and staff needs and identities are multi-dimensional and nuanced. Institutional objectives are ambitious and broad in scope. The social, economic, political and environmental changes facing our communities and our countries are fluid and interlocking.

So, how do we make sense of these realities and rise effectively to the opportunities and challenges they present? The 2023 EAIE Community Summit: Thriving in complexity will bring together the EAIE community to discuss these dynamics and offer information and inspiration to help you move toward the future with new energy and highly practical insights.

Constructing Student Mobility: How Universities Recruit Students and Shape Pathways between Berkeley and Seoul

The popular image of the international student in the American imagination is one of affluence, access, and privilege, but is that image accurate? In this provocative book, higher education scholar Stephanie Kim challenges this view, arguing that universities—not the students—allow students their international mobility. Focusing on universities in the US and South Korea that aggressively grew their student pools in the aftermath of the Great Recession, Kim shows the lengths universities will go to expand enrollments as they draw from the same pool of top South Korean students.

Kim closely follows several students attending a university in Berkeley and a university in Seoul. They have chosen different paths to study abroad or learn at home, but all are seeking a transformative educational experience. To show how student mobility depends on institutional structures, Kim demonstrates how the universities themselves compel students’ choices to pursue higher learning at one institution or another. She also profiles the people who help ensure the global student supply chain runs smoothly, from education agents in South Korea to community college recruiters in California. Using ethnographic research gathered over a ten-year period in which international admissions were impacted by the Great Recession, changes in US presidential administrations, and the COVID-19 pandemic, Constructing Student Mobility provides crucial insights into the purpose, effects, and future of student recruitment across the Pacific.

Internationalising Higher Education and the Role of Virtual Exchange

This volume introduces Virtual Exchange (VE) as an innovative form of online learning and investigates the myriad ways VE is being carried out across universities, ultimately arguing for the integration of VE into university internationalisation policies and course curricula.

Against the backdrop of increased digitalisation initiatives throguhout universities given the effects of the pandemic, chapters focus not only on providing new research findings, but also on providing a comprehensive introduction and argumentation for the use of VE in university education and also in demonstrating how it can be put into use by both university decision-makers and educators. Reviewing the limitations of the activity, this timely work fundamentally posits how VE and blended mobility more broadly could be developed in future higher education initiatives.

This book will be of interest to researchers, academics, scholars, and students involved with Open & Distance Education and eLearning, Technology in Education, and the study of higher education more broadly. Those interested in methods for teaching and learning, as well as educational research, will also benefit from this volume.

Sustainable Education Abroad: Striving for Change

Scholars and practitioners from around the globe come together in this volume to identify the role global student mobility plays in climate impact and identify promising practices that can be implemented to make change.

Conveying both urgency, as well as a sense of hope and opportunity, this volume will help the field of education abroad familiarize stakeholders with the sustainability challenges we face as a field and take the necessary steps forward to do better.

Diversity Abroad | Inclusive Learning Institute | March 29 – 31, 2023

Faculty play a critical role in advancing student success. As higher education institutions become more globally diverse, faculty are positioned to both advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in and through their work. Additionally as faculty ranks diversify, faculty are positioned to foster a climate of inclusion and belonging to support the success of colleagues from diverse backgrounds.

The Inclusive Learning Institute, by Diversity Abroad, is an immersive learning and development event that convenes faculty and other education professionals to explore the intersection of global engagement, diversity, equity, and inclusion in teaching and learning. Attendees will engage in critical discussions, share best practices, and build networks to advance diversity, equity, inclusion, and global engagement in pedagogy, curriculum, and co-curricular activities.

Attendees will also gain access to the ILI23 Hub the week before ILI23. The ILI23 Hub consists of resources, learning materials, and networking opportunities to expand beyond the two-day event. All sessions will be recorded and posted to the ILI23 Hub for attendees to revisit up to a month after the event.
