The Handbook of Practice and Research in Study Abroad: Higher Education and the Quest for Global Citizenship

Co-published by AAC&U and Routledge, this book is a comprehensive survey of the study abroad and global learning fields. Each chapter conveys an enthusiasm for study abroad alongside a critical assessment of the most up-to-date research, theory and practice. The volume brings together the insights of expert academics, senior administrators, practitioners of study abroad, and policy makers from across the United States, Canada, and other parts of the world. Among its many chapters, the book includes a chapter on globalizing the curriculum co-authored by Kevin Hovland and Caryn McTighe Musil of AAC&U, along with Ellen Skilton-Sylvester, Associate Professor, Arcadia University, and Amy Jamison, Michigan State University doctoral candidate. This book is an indispensable reference volume for scholars, higher education faculty, study abroad professionals, policy makers, and the academic libraries that serve these audiences.
