Resource description

Trahar describes some experiences of learning and teaching in the ‘internationalised classroom’. She considers the extent to which academics and students are perpetuating a form of neo-colonialism if we do not reflect critically on approaches to learning and teaching when working alongside people from different academic traditions. The chapter illustrates how, by developing an understanding of ways in which learning and teaching are conceptualised in different cultures, it is possible to make adjustments to teaching in order to develop strategies that are inclusive of diversity and which are evaluated positively by students. If learning and teaching are to be effective for all, it needs careful preparation with a focus on the complexities of the constituency. Trahar argues that this constituency is not going to reduce in complexity, even if numbers of international students decrease through greater overseas competition.
