The focus for this text is the provision of quality teaching and learning for overseas students. It brings together, for the first time, contributions from major authorities in the field. Offering sound practical advice, successive chapters discuss key findings from current research and explore a range of ways in which the teaching of overseas students might be improved.
The book will be of particular interest to all staff in higher education institutions who have a measure of responsibility for teaching overseas students. It refers to a wide range of students' overseas backgrounds, including the Pacific Rim, China and the European Community.
