Teaching Chinese Students – Cutting Across Culture and Language Barriers

If you are conducting a TNE program in China, or your home campus has a significant proportion of international students, then teaching a cohort with limited English proficiency has become an unavoidable reality in today’s education sector. 

How do you build your teaching resources suitable for such a cohort? How do you adapt pedagogy or make changes in learning outcomes and measurements? Hear more from Professor Stuart Perrin, Dean for international affairs and front line industry practitioner on bilingual teaching!

The concept and tactics he can provide are not only beneficial to bilingual teaching but also for teaching/training a cohort who has limited language proficiency and cultural adaptations.
