International Classroom Literature Review

VU International News and Reviews No. 99 October 9 2017

October 2017

As mentioned in VU IN&R 96, regular International Education media publications based on thorough research are more scarce than one would want. But another Journal has come to our attention: the Journal of International Students, published since 2011 – with a purely American board of editors.

In Volume 7(3), a systematic literature review is published on the Experience of Education in the International Classroom. The findings of the study – using both students’ and teachers’ perspectives– shows academic cultural differences seem to have more impact on the learning outcomes in the international classroom than language barriers. The study started with an article base of 10 100, which it narrowed down to 104 articles that were actually read and then to 29 articles actually included in the study.
