Reviews and Testimonials

Offering an international coverage, including China, the Russian Federation, the European Union, Egypt, and Hong Kong, this volume is part of the Advances in Higher Education and Professional Development book series. The chapters cover a range of topics, including collaboration, international education, the influence of andragogy, recruiting international students to a university in the United States, technology use, the role of professional organizations, open education, and more. Some of the chapters are case studies, offering insights on what has been done and how to improve or change what is currently occurring in one’s own institution in any type of environment, while others offer a historical overview or an examination of the literature on a topic.
