Foreign Travel Makes U.S. Professors More Likely to Include International and Comparative Perspectives in their Teaching and Scholarship
American professors who spend time abroad as adults are more likely to incorporate international perspectives into their teaching and research. But professors from countries like Mexico and Australia are more likely than U.S. professors to incorporate international and global perspectives into their teaching and research. Those are some of the findings of a new (and still unpublished) paper by researchers at Seton Hall University, as described in an article in The Chronicle of Higher Education. Karin Fischer, U.S. Faculty Members Lag on Global Engagement, Chronicle of Higher Education, Feb. 13, 2009, at A37. We look forward to seeing the paper when it is published.
