The issues of student success and engagement among Chinese students are well-observed and ongoing challenges for US universities. Beyond language skills, Chinese students also face hurdles with their understanding of academic expectations and cultural adaptation which has their roots in the Chinese education system.
As the coronavirus pandemic forced universities to shift their instruction and services to a virtual environment, it also provided them with an opportunity to experiment with traditional programming and its delivery. With the advent of the “new normal,” a number of new possibilities are now available to higher education institutions, allowing them to reimagine their offerings in order to better engage Chinese students and support their development.
In this session, presenters will:
- Share data, based on survey responses from both Chinese and American educators, that identifies key areas for additional support
- Facilitate a discussion with international education leaders to reflect upon traditional ways of supporting Chinese students, including challenges faced due to discrimination, and to explore new possibilities afforded by increased technological capabilities.
- Examine lessons learned from previous engagement initiatives and discuss unique solutions for student support for the Chinese student population.
