This special topic New Direction in Teaching and Learning volume presents several articles exploring international perspectives on critical issues impacting teaching and learning in a diverse range of higher education environments. The need to understand learning and teaching from multiple cultural perspectives becomes critically important in preparing institutions, and developing faculty members, to meet evolving 21st-century needs. The quality of higher education and the need to facilitate high-level learning has never been more important (Groccia & Buskist, 2011), and as the world continues to shrink, in Friedman's (2007) terms, becomes "FLAT," higher education becomes even more critical for all countries around the world. This New Directions on Teaching and Learning volume is a companion to a series of symposia entitled International Perspectives on University Teaching and Learning developed and hosted by Auburn University Office of International Programs.
