Abstract

This book provides key contributions by leading international researchers and scholars on a range of perspectives related to improving learning outcomes for students across educational settings from the primary years, through to university and beyond. It will be of interest to school administrators, teachers, researchers and policy makers who are interested in finding new and innovative ways to meet the needs of learners in the globalized world of the 21st century in culturally competent and meaningful ways. Throughout the chapters, a common theme of innovation, reform and overcoming barriers to learning are highlighted and the reader will gain a considerable knowledge of strategies and techniques to improve learner engagement and outcomes in meaningful and effective ways. In addition, this book will be of interest to university professors who wish to find a comprehensive reader for teacher preparation courses that provide international perspectives of academics from around the world, including the UK, USA, Australia, Norway, Kazakhstan and Korea. This broad and international perspective also provides a starting point for discussing culture and the role it plays in educational and life outcomes and how educators can become culturally competent in designing, delivering and facilitating learning experiences across sectors and around the globe.
