This book is a compilation of new scholarship in the field of global education. Previously unaddressed or barely touched upon topics include: the historical evolution of the global education movement; the development of a foundation for the formation of a philosophy of global education; an analysis of the competing orientations of global education and multicultural education; mentorship in global education pedagogy based on the master apprentice model; and the latest research of the impact of national policies in education on global teacher education practice. A unique contribution captures the complexities and geopolitical context during Russia's early hours of democracy in integrating global education in Russian education. Written by internationally acclaimed scholars, this book is at the cutting edge of new creative scholarship in global education. Visions in Global Education is a must-read for teachers in every stage of their careers, and will be useful in a variety of classrooms addressing global education.
