Online Masterclass in Teaching and Supporting International Students

In many countries, the number of international students has increased dramatically in recent years. For example, in 2017-18, around 36% of all postgraduate students in UK universities were overseas students and this number has continued to increase. Moreover, these students are not evenly distributed from different nations: for example, almost 1/4 of the 458,490 total overseas students in the UK come from China. This provides a range of amazing opportunities as well as a number of challenges. How can we make the most of these opportunities and create an educational environment in which people from all international backgrounds feel welcome? What are some of the challenges which students face and how can we mitigate or address these challenges? In this online masterclass we will discuss research findings and strategies which can help to create an inclusive environment for international students. The session will begin with a short presentation, and then move into interactive tasks in which participants work in small groups to share ideas and experiences, before feeding back to the whole group. A handout with tips for teaching or supporting international students will be provided.
