Approaches to studying for learning at university.

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.

Planning

"You have to be aware that making a change to one module here might have big implications somewhere else."

Collaboration

"Students will have materials electronically created by the whole module team, but still have module outlines from the home campus."

Integration

"The last thing you want to do is get yourself into a group of people from your own country… you'll learn nothing."
