Faculty: Take part in final NAFSA webinar on helping Chinese students understand U.S. classrooms

Join NAFSA: Association of International Educators for “Today’s Chinese Student: Understanding the U.S. Classroom‌,” the final webinar in this three-part series on working with Chinese undergraduates on U.S. campuses. The series focuses on the integration of Chinese students into campus life, the classroom and the community. Learn about the needs of Chinese students and develop your understanding of their cultural and academic background and preparedness.

Chinese students encounter many common problems in U.S. classroom, ranging from issues of academic integrity to building relationships with faculty and academic advisers. This webinar will provide best practices to help Chinese students address these and other challenges, such as English language difficulties and unfamiliar classroom expectations. Presenters also will discuss how to support faculty in adjusting to the changing demographic of the U.S. classroom.

The event will take place April 4 from 3 to 4:30 p.m. in the Dampeer Room of Kelvin Smith Library.

Light refreshments will be served. Contact Molly Watkins or Gail Reese for more information.
