Event description

Description

As international education continues to become a defining component of our university landscapes, it is important to consider how pedagogy and curriculum in higher education accounts for cultural differences within the classroom. In some cases, cultural differences can create barriers to learning that are equal to or greater than language barriers. Differences in teaching styles and expectations for classroom performance and participation can differ greatly across cultures and as a result, can greatly impact the learning outcomes and overall experience of an international student. In an effort to highlight the importance of this topic, this panel discussion will consider ways to bridge the gap between Eastern and Western teaching techniques on globalized campuses by offering an analysis of current research in the field and practitioner experiences.

Panelists Include:

Dr. Jun Liu

Vice Provost for Global Affairs, Dean of International Academic Programs and Services, and Professor of Linguistics at Stony Brook University

Dr. Peter N. Stearns

Provost Emeritus and Professor of History at George Mason University

Dr. Wenrong Xia

Chinese Deputy Director, the Confucius Institute at George Washington University and Associate Professor at Nanjing University

The panel will be moderated by:

Lauren Sinclair, PhD

Academic Director, International Accelerator Program at American University
