This book emphasizes ways in which communication skills are used to enhance the learning process in the disciplines. Specifically, it presents experiences and best practices from institutions in various cultures the United States, India, Egypt, Qatar, United Arab Emirates and Australia. Related pedagogical issues that affect engagement - critical inquiry, creativity and integrity - are given prominence. The title Sustaining Excellence in Communicating across the Curriculum: Cross-Institutional Experiences and Best Practices, thus, provides a framework for the variety of practices that foster student empowerment, cultivate ownership of expression, and sustain learning excellence within and across disciplines. Scholars of CAC, teachers concerned with active, engaging pedagogies across the disciplines, and applied linguists will find this anthology particularly appealing. The culture-specific experiences are intriguing, highlighting surprising similarities and differences in the application of CAC theory.
