Simulating International Students' Experience - @Institute of Teaching and Learning (Manchester)

Activity: Participating in or organising event(s)Organising a conference, workshop, exhibition, performance, inquiry, course etcResearch


A simulation for the Institute of Teaching & Learning series of staff development workshops.

Through a simulation, this session aims to help staff: better understand students’ experience of transitioning into a new academic culture; and reflect on the (assumptions regarding) rules and norms of academic life.

The session includes:
- a simulation (which originated in intercultural training);
- a debriefing and reflection of the simulation; and
- a discussion of the implications to be drawn from the simulation for supporting international (and other) students (and staff) with their transitions to academic life at Manchester.
