Reforming the Higher Education Curriculum is a collection of papers that explore how a college or university can plan and implement a systemwide program for internationalizing the curriculum, not only from the perspective of specific international programs, but throughout the entire university. The authors address this issue from a variety of perspectives, discussing reasons why internationalizing the curriculum is needed, recommending general approaches for doing so, and creating an outline for internationalizing courses in various disciplines. Also provided are suggestions for internationalizing faculty thinking and assessing student outcomes for international programs. This book will be of great interest to presidents, deans, vice presidents for academic affairs, faculty members, and administrators of international study programs.

Vietnam is a dynamic member of the community of Southeast Asian nations. Consistent with aspirations across the region, it is seeking to develop its higher education system as rapidly as possible. Vietnam’s approach stands out, however, as being extremely ambitious. Indeed, it may be at risk of attempting to do too much too quickly. By 2020, for example, Vietnam expects its higher education system to be advanced by modern standards and highly competitive in international terms. This vision faces many challenges. The economy, though growing rapidly, remains reliant on the availability of unskilled labour and the exploitation of natural resources, and decision making in many areas of public life continues to be hamstrung by a legacy of over-regulation and centralised control. A large number of goals and objectives have been set for reform of the higher education system by 2020. The success of these reforms will have a major bearing on the future quality of the system. This sober assessment Vietnam’s global competitiveness forms a backdrop to the subject matter of this book, that is, the state of Vietnam’s higher education system. The book provides a comprehensive and scholarly review of various dimensions of the higher education system in Vietnam, including its recent history, its structure and governance, its teaching and learning culture, its research and research commercialisation environment, its socio-economic impact, its strategic planning processes, its progress with quality accreditation, and its experience of internationalisation and privatisation.

Unraveling stereotypes about conservative, liberal, and radical reform efforts, Miller looks at what has acutally happened when theories about education have been put into practice.

This book tells the story of how the education faculty in a small, Midwestern liberal arts college recovered from the loss of its NCATE (National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education) accreditation. Over a period of ten years, the faculty revitalized, reconceptualized, and redesigned their teacher education program, regaining accreditation in the process. Among the areas addressed are developing a conceptual framework and an assessment plan, the teaching of literacy and writing, field placements, technology integration, creative staffing, and diversity. What emerges is a portrait of a faculty engaged in a vibrant and developmental process of change and reform focused on the preparation of quality teachers for America's schools.
