					View 2023: Curriculum Theory and Pedagogy for Student Mobility: Research and Practice in International Higher Education

Curriculum Theory and Pedagogy for Student Mobility – an edited collection of international research – seeks to examine how curriculum theory within different social, political, and cultural contexts can be actuated to advance equity and diversity, plus supportive and inclusive outcomes in international student education. A comprehensive volume, it contours a holistic interdisciplinary landscape of the field. The book draws upon both a broad range of curriculum-related theoretical frameworks and multiple perspectives to offer a diverse spectrum of examples about the many challenges and complexities involved in not only theorizing about, but doing the work of, educating international students in institutions of higher education. Additionally, the book provides a strong pedagogical framework for enhanced teaching practices, as well as new avenues for research in international student education. Drawing upon the expertise of contributors from varied backgrounds, identities, fields, and positionalities, the assembled chapters elucidate contemporary curriculum theory and its foundations and uses and analyzes its potential in international education. Equally, theoreticians and practitioners, both, offer valuable insights into conceptualizing, strategizing, and applying curriculum theory-driven research and proven practices for the advancement of the field of international student education.
