University World News
Most international educators have a very positive feeling about the contribution their work will make to students' personal and professional development and to peace and mutual understanding in the world. They are driven by their enthusiasm and by the opportunities that European programs such as Erasmus+ and other scholarship schemes offer. For them, international education is not only a job but an ideal.

Anyone Still Listening? Educators Consider Killing The Lecture
MindShift
Scott Aikin admits that he's "a very conservative pedagogue." That's why the author and Associate Professor of Philosophy at Vanderbilt University says that, this fall, he's asking his students to keep their laptops at home. Instead, he wants their full attention for his main method of teaching: lecturing. "I call it 'the chalk and talk.' I have a piece of chalk and I talk. I fill the board with notes and sometimes diagram things or map out an argument. Students are allowed to stop and ask questions or challenge at any time, and I'll make good on answers. That's it. Students only need pens and paper for the class (if not their books, too)," he said.

U.S. News & World Report
The opportunity to study as an international student comes with many advantages and only a few limitations. One of those drawbacks is the need to obtain a student visa, which restricts international students' options for off-campus employment. Students are permitted to hold jobs on campus, such as in retail or customer service positions, to help cover expenses and supplement funding from scholarships and loans.

Ranking America's Top Colleges 2013
Forbes
For the sixth year, Forbes has partnered with the Washington, D.C.-based Center for College Affordability and Productivity for The Top Colleges in the U.S. The FORBES list of 650 schools distinguishes itself from competitors by our belief in "output" over "input." We're not all that interested in what gets a student into college, like our peers who focus heavily on selectivity metrics such as high school class rank, SAT scores and the like. Our sights are set directly on ROI: What are students getting out of college?
