In their shoes: Understanding the international student perspective

As educators, we often forget what it is like to be a student. In particular, an international student. In addition to this, it is challenging to empathise with international students unless we ourselves have studied in a second language. We do our best as educators to ensure teaching is inclusive of international students, but often forget to do this due to constraints such as prioritising with delivering content.

In this event, Jason Cormick-Dockery and Abraham Punnen discuss barriers to learning faced by international students and make recommendations for institutions and educators, including having subjects that promote intercultural differences.
