Editorial Reviews

Awarded a Bookstore Book Award by the University of Lethbridge Bookstore  'This book does highlight the complexities of intercultural teaching and learning and expands the theoretical and practical possibilities. Educators will find most chapters in this book of interest, offering as they do some practical ideas for action, as well as theoretical propositions and sometimes discomforting challenges to our own beliefs and understandings about learning and teaching across cultures in higher education.' - Higher Education Research & Development  '...offers food for thought and action.' - Studies in Higher Education
