Working with and understanding international students

Colleagues are invited to attend the Learning and Teaching Network session titled ‘Working with and understanding international students’ on Wednesday 28 February 13.15-14.30 in Sibson Seminar Room 2, Canterbury.

Presented by Angela Koch, Student Learning Advisor, Student Learning Advisory Service, UELT and Charlene Earl, International Pathways Manager, Centre for English and World Languages.

Students’ differences provide a valuable setting where opportunities for learning, exchanging and reflection multiply. For this to happen activities and resources need to be designed in a way that engages students’ prior knowledge and skills, whether the intent is to build on that knowledge, to unpack it, or to encourage new ways of thinking and communicating.

Colleagues from SLAS and CEWL will share their experience and current practice of working with international students and will introduce some of the programmes and resources currently available to support them. There will be opportunities for reflection and discussion of possible ideas and instructional strategies to support inclusive teaching practices benefiting both international and home students alike.

All staff are welcome to attend, particularly those working with international students.
