Webinar - 'Today's Chinese Student: Understanding the U.S. Classroom'

Did you know that 1,382 of the UA's 3,118 international students are from China?

The Office of Global Initiatives, the Confucius Institute and the Department of East Asian Studies present the final webinar of the NAFSA series "Today's Chinese Student."

Chinese students encounter many common problems in the United States classroom, ranging from issues of academic integrity to building relationships with faculty and academic advisers. This webinar will provide best practices to help Chinese students address these and other challenges, such as English language difficulties and unfamiliar classroom expectations. Presenters also will discuss how to support faculty in adjusting to the changing demographic of the U.S. classroom. Learn from experts who are committed to supporting the academic integration of Chinese students on their campuses.

The webinar is scheduled to last about one-and- a-half hours. Immediately following the webinar, there will be an hour for a faculty-led panel discussion featuring Jenny Lee, Dian Li and Zhao Chen, of the ways that we can work together to better serve and support Chinese international students at the UA.
