Series: Progress in Education
BISAC: EDU000000

This series presents substantial results from around the globe in selected areas of educational research. The field of education is consistently on the top of priority lists of every country in the world, yet few educators are aware of the progress elsewhere. Many techniques, programs and methods are directly applicable across borders.

Topics discussed herein include applying universal design to build supports for college students with autism spectrum disorder; web-enhanced collaborative learning in undergraduate psychology courses; a literature review of the use of mental imagery in health professions education; scaffold learning, peer review and mind mapping; the work hours reform in US graduate medical education; the emergence from e-learning to m-learning; understanding and redefining multicultural education; a perspective to examine learning environments; and progress in international graduate students education.
