Implications for Curriculum, Teacher Preparation and Pedagogical Practice
Volume Editor:
Despite the superdiversity of an increasingly multicultural and multilingual world, policy and practice in education continues to deal with issues of inclusion and diversity in language education in rather tangential and peripheral ways. To address critical issues in multicultural and multilingual education, with implications for curriculum, teacher preparation and pedagogical practice, this volume brings together international perspectives on research, policy and pedagogical practice that help the global community gain new insights into ground-breaking work that addresses current questions, challenges and complexities in an education world of superdiversity.

Abstract

Among the many students traveling from different parts of the world to Korea for graduate education, African students form the minority. With limited empirical evidence within the Asian context, this qualitative study explores African international students’ lived experiences in graduate education in South Korea in a phenomenological manner. Twelve participants were purposively selected from different universities, at diverse higher education levels, and from different parts of the African continent. The participants described their thematic experiences in relation to distinct lived worlds, including their space, time, self, relations, and technology. Also, the findings indicate that international students contribute immensely to graduate education through the diversity of perspectives they bring to academic learning, research, and multicultural exposure. Nonetheless, students face transitional challenges in their academics and social life. The challenge of learning and using the Korean language within the limited duration of studies can limit the full realization of one’s experience as an international graduate student. The perspectives identified in this study could guide university faculty members, the student affairs department, language learning centers, Korean students, and alumni bodies in maximizing the experiences of international students at the graduate level.

Modern Individualism under the Test of Cosmopolitanism
Global citizenship education is an essential topic in an increasingly interconnected world. Indeed the need for inclusive and globally conscious education, embedded in cosmopolitanism, is recognised as a way to prepare individuals to navigate diverse cultures, address global challenges, and actively participate in a globalised world.

Being both scientific and political, these challenges require an interdisciplinary exploration of citizenship education, merging sociology, philosophy, as well as education and training sciences. To do this, Global Citizenship Education: Modern Individualism under the Test of Cosmopolitanism offers a framework that integrates Durkheim's holistic approach with critical republicanism.

The book is also rooted in the analysis of data collected through GlobalSense, a research project that focuses on preparing teachers to navigate the complexities of GCE within an international context. By presenting both a theoretical reflection and an analysis of an international training program within universities, this book can be of interest to academics, teacher trainers and (future) teachers themselves.
