 Forum 2011 Glossary v2.pdf

Education Abroad Glossary, 2nd edition, 2011

The terminology of the field of education abroad is as diverse as its practices, resulting in a degree of semantic ambiguity that at times borders on anarchy. Several terms may be used for the same concept, or the same term may have several meanings. This glossary is a beginning attempt to establish an agreed-upon set of definitions upon which education abroad professionals can base their work.
