This Special includes an introduction
from Monika Foster and overviews from Yvonne Turner and Jude Carroll. Its 16
chapters are in four parts: Supporting induction and transition to UK higher
education; Teaching on cultural diverse programmes; Enhancing the experience of
Chinese students and Enhancing the experience of Indian students.
Is this Special for me?
Aimed at colleagues engaged in work with international students in the
UK HE context in subject studies, staff working in graduate school skills
support, staff working with postgraduate students, staff working on
collaborative programmes overseas and in the UK, colleagues working in educational
development to support tutors on culturally diverse courses and programme
developers and management, this Special deals with the current ‘hot’ topic of
UK HE. This Special builds on Special 23 by taking a wider view of culturally
diverse education and the opportunities it offers. It does so by providing
unique insights and advice on teaching and supporting international students
and looking into ways of making the multicultural environment work for all and
so promises to be relevant to a wider educational audience.
