Dr Zita Stone, Senior Lecturer in Management, Associate Dean of Graduate Studies and PG Student Experience (Taught) was a keynote speaker at an event organised by the (triple-accredited) Vienna University of Economics & Business on Teaching and Learning in International Classrooms on 28 September 2021.

Her talk covered topics imperative to the world of global education and included:

  • What is a truly international classroom and how can we create it?
  • What are challenges in international classrooms and how can we overcome them?
  • What are helpful didactic concepts or ideas to cater to diverse student groups and their needs?
  • How has the digitalisation of teaching and learning impacted internationalisation?

She says:

“Given KBS’s global strategic outlook and its status as a triple-accredited Business School, it is crucial to engage in forums where we have opportunities to share our excellent practice and learn new ways from equally ambitious Business Schools. This can only benefit the teaching and learning experience for not only international staff and students, but the whole KBS community.”
