‘The Inclusive Classroom: Academic Cultural Differences’

NHL & Stenden International Week 8 – 11 May 2017

With Keynote Presenter Kenneth Cushner, Emeritus Professor of International Education, Kent State University

Universities around the world welcome students from abroad and at the same time send their students for study abroad programmes to partner universities. How can we deal with academic cultural differences in the inclusive classroom? How can we bridge the gap between academic cultures and with prior learning? And on the other hand: How can we prepare our students for academic cultural differences and manage expectations when they do a study abroad semester?

Learn from experts and share your academic culture during our International Week: a four day long experience for teachers, staff members and students with teaching opportunities, workshops, job shadowing sessions and exciting social events.
