Higher education institutions strive to support international students, but might be unintentionally harming the learning relationship. Often, they provide general support rather than re-examining existing pedagogic practices, preventing a more inclusive, ethical, and sustainable international curriculum. 

Frequently, pedagogical practices are being informed by a deficit narrative that focuses too much on challenges faced by international students. This shapes learning experiences, given that many international students perceive discriminatory language and bias from their classmates and from lecturers. 

Would more research focused support for their academic transitions and learning experiences be more helpful?

This event aims to build on existing literature and case studies and explore what is currently known about evidence-based pedagogic practices for and with international students. 

Speaker

  • Dr Jenna Mittelmeier, Lecturer in International Education in the Manchester Institute of Education at The University of Manchester
