Workshop Name Teaching international students: good practice ideas
About Workshop International students, like all students, are a diverse group of people with a range of learning and support needs. And like all students, they also bring to their studies rich experiences, expectations and prior knowledge. How can we best cater to this diverse group of students? In the first half of this workshop, you will be invited to identify key challenges commonly associated with teaching international students, and to consider some insights from recent research on how to address these. The second half of the workshop will involve a panel discussion where international students and staff who teach/supervise international students will share their perspectives and good practice ideas.

Learning outcomes
By the end of this workshop you will have:

1. reflected on your own beliefs and assumptions about international students and their learning needs.
2. gained some insights into recent research on effective teaching and supervision in the ‘internationalised’ university.
3. learnt about a range of approaches used at the University of Otago to teach, supervise and support international students effectively.
4. heard some international students’ perspectives on what works for them.

Our HEDC seminar room is up a flight of stairs. If this is going to create accessibility issues for you, please contact Candi Young at or on 471 6385.
