CIUA Event Date: 

Thursday, April 4, 2013 - 12:00pm

Did you know that 1382 of UA's 3118 international students are from China?
The Office of Global Initiatives, the Confucius Institute, and the Department of East Asian Studies Invite you to join us for the final webinar of the NAFSA series "Today's Chinese Student."

Webinar Description

Chinese students encounter many common problems in the U.S. classroom, ranging from issues of academic integrity to building relationships with faculty and academic advisors. 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 will also 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 approximately 1.5 hours. Immediately following the webinar, there will be an hour for faculty-led panel discussion, with Dr. Jenny Lee, Dr. Dian Li, and Dr. Zhao Chen, of the ways that we can work together to better serve and support Chinese international students at the UA.
