Descripción ↑ subir

The book takes a critical look at the internationalization of higher education and argues for the importance of grounding education in spiritual perspectives. Using spiritual traditions to review the practices, programs, and philosophies of learning that internationalize universities, the author proposes a paradigm for internationalization that respects other ways of knowing. This focus seeks to decolonize knowledge and promote intercultural understanding, as well as help students achieve holistic personal development while studying abroad.
