The staff experience of learning from internationalisation.

Short paper

Learning in university: the role of university teachers: Earlier literature on teaching international students in higher education focused on helping students to adapt to the dominant ("our") learning cultures (Ballard and Clanchy, 1997i) and viewed differences between home and international students as deficits. This paper briefly focuses on the later work of contributions to higher education teaching, specifically John Biggs (2003) an educational psychologist and former Professor at the University of Hong Kong, and various other writers. All of these writers argue that cross-cultural teaching should focus on the universality of the learning process rather than on pedagogical and cultural differences.

Internationalisation themes
Reciprocity

"The scale of the overseas campuses is growing up, they're building their own values, and we've got exchange in both directions."

Perspectives

"We're looking at something the same, but we all pool together our experiences and it makes a new thing."

Globalisation

"As a lecturer in HE you face a bigger challenge in conveying the relevance and significance of what you want them to learn."
