International students play a significant role in helping to shape the stage of world development and international cooperation. Studying abroad is often the impetus that motivates students to get involved in international affairs. It is especially important then to provide an inclusive and supportive learning environment for international students.

 

This workshop will help you identify the needs, difficulties, and challenges that international students face and discuss the social psychological, cultural, and institutional reasons behind their behaviors. We will identify visible and invisible gaps between the perspectives of international students and faculty. We will discuss strategies for how to overcome these gaps through group discussions. Together we will creatively think about different types of pedagogy and education philosophy.
