Representing the fruit of a lifetime of reflection and practice, this comprehensive resource helps teachers understand the way people in different cultures learn so they can adapt their teaching for maximum effectiveness. Drawing on extensive research and cross-cultural experience from around the world, senior missiologist and educator Craig Ott introduces students to current theories and best practices for teaching and learning across cultures. He examines five dimensions of culture's influence on teaching and learning: cognition, worldview, social relations, use of instructional media, and the environmental context. Additional topics include intercultural competence for teachers living in a foreign culture and learning style theory. Case studies, illustrations, diagrams, and sidebars help the theories of the book come to life. Teaching and Learning across Cultures will be useful for professors and students of missions and intercultural studies as well as intercultural teachers, including development workers, missionaries, teachers of English as a second language, and cross-cultural teachers.
