Foster, Monika (2011) Engaging students in enhanced academic transitions, Working with Cultural Diversity in Higher Education. SEDA Specials, 28 . SEDA. ISBN 9781902435503

Item Type: Book


This Special includes an introduction from Monika Foster and overviews from Yvonne Turner and Jude Carroll. Its 16 chapters are in four parts: Supporting induction and transition to UK higher education; Teaching on cultural diverse programmes; Enhancing the experience of Chinese students and Enhancing the experience of Indian students.

Is this Special for me?

Aimed at colleagues engaged in work with international students in the UK HE context in subject studies, staff working in graduate school skills support, staff working with postgraduate students, staff working on collaborative programmes overseas and in the UK, colleagues working in educational development to support tutors on culturally diverse courses and programme developers and management, this Special deals with the current ‘hot’ topic of UK HE. This Special builds on Special 23 by taking a wider view of culturally diverse education and the opportunities it offers. It does so by providing unique insights and advice on teaching and supporting international students and looking into ways of making the multicultural environment work for all and so promises to be relevant to a wider educational audience.
