Sharing and engaging in interactions and discussion as required for collaborative teaching and learning can be a foreign concept to students coming from Asia or growing up in an Asian family. As such, this first volume in a two–volume edition helps lecturers, educators, and teachers create collaborative teaching and learning experiences with multicultural adult learners in higher education. Topics include:

assessment and evaluation techniques that focus on collaborative teaching and learning with diverse students,

students cultural beliefs and strategies for outcomes–based collaborative teaching and learning in Asia, and

an understanding of the unique learning motivations of contemporary Asian students.

This is the 142nd volume of this Jossey–Bass higher education series. It offers a comprehensive range of ideas and techniques for improving college teaching based on the experience of seasoned instructors and the latest findings of educational and psychological researchers.
