Overseas students’ academic skills development: How the English Language Centre can help.
It is well recognised that teaching International Students and having a culturally diverse classroom are extremely rewarding, but also present challenges, both for academics and students. Such challenges will be daunting for those who have limited experience of supporting and teaching International Students, but also for students experiencing for the first time an international, culturally diverse classroom.
This session will address the following questions:
- Who is in the English Language Centre and what does it do?
- What are the main challenges facing students who are not native speakers of English?
- What are these ‘academic skills’ that all students are expected to come to university with or to develop?
- How can the English Language Centre help you support students with academic skills development?
The session will take place on 12th October, 2-3pm via MS Teams.
