New Models and Emerging Perspectives in Global Education
The Global Studies Literature Review editorial team welcomes you to explore the many thoughtful contributions to Issue No. 9, "New Models and Emerging Perspectives in Global Education," including a special introduction celebrating the 15 year anniversary of the Teaching, Learning, and Scholarship Knowledge Community (TLS KC) by KC Chair Sora H. Friedman, PhD. We received a record number of submissions for this issue, in part due to the enhanced promotion and support from the NAFSA editorial team. The topic prompted many of our readers—and many new contributors—to explore some of the inspiring new work in international education.
This robust engagement highlights the range of our field's professional practices, a theme at the heart of Bernhard Streitwieser and Anthony C. Ogden's edited volume International Higher Education's Scholar-Practitioners: Bridging Research and Practice (2016), reviewed in this issue. Ashley T. Simmons's synopsis emphasizes the editors' case that the melded role of many international education professionals is crucial not only to our field's research and practice, but even more significant to the ways in which academic knowledge is globalized through international education. We are proud to be part of that influence in the field of global education.
