Event description

Description

Session: How to help international students succeed, by understanding their perspectives and challenges
Date: Wednesday, Aug. 23, 2017
Time: 9 a.m. – 11 a.m.
Room CCIS L2 200

This workshop is designed for U of A staff and faculty who frequently interact with international students. International students often think, communicate and respond differently than local students. Understandably, they were educated in other parts of the world, and were taught a different way of thinking; their mental map of how the world works varies from our own.

Using insightful diagrams, powerful anecdotes, experiential exercises and real-life case studies, this workshop will help U of A staff and faculty to understand where international students are coming from and, more importantly, provides concrete suggestions on how to bridge the gap in communication.

Please RSVP for sessions. Seating is limited.
