Transcultural Interaction and Linguistic Diversity in Higher Education

The Student Experience

Anne Fabricius (Editor), Bent Preisler (Editor)

    Research output: Book/ReportAnthologyResearchpeer-review

    Abstract

    This volume presents the current state of the art for research on the sociolinguistic consequences of the internationalization of higher education for university students. Its focus on “the student experience” for an increasingly mobile university student population is intended to foreground this particular area as a counterfoil to pedagogical studies of, for example, teaching or research practice in international(izing) university education, or work which concentrates on higher education policies at governmental levels. International Higher Education has emerged strongly in recent years as an area of empirical interest, where sociolinguistics and applied linguistics can make important contributions to theorizing the processes and challenges involved in educating a young and transiently mobile population. The book places the student experience centrally in this discussion.

    The book’s authors and case studies represent countries from across the globe: Australia, Austria, Canada, China (including Macau), Denmark, Germany, Iceland, Spain, UK, and USA (including Puerto Rico)
