The urban experience varies widely across the world, and its analysis and understanding depends on the observers’ personal backgrounds and experiences as well as their professional and educational developments. Furthermore, the experience of teaching and learning at a new university in another country poses new challenges for both teachers and students. Both sides need to navigate the contextual differences between their previous and new pedagogical and social environments, develop ways of communicating with each other, understand their new environment, and benefit from the opportunities that this interface offers. This touches on a broader issue of how we learn new ideas, and the role of critical thinking and dialogical experiences in learning and teaching. The paper explores these themes, drawing on the author’s experience of acting as a visiting professor.
