This webinar looks at strategies that teachers and student support staff can implement to help international students feel part of the school community, to bond strongly with other students and to develop confidence in living in Australia. Students who feel a part of the school community, who have strong relationships with other students and staff are more likely to attend classes and to successfully complete their courses
Hence strong bonding and feeling supported by the school are key elements in making a course fruitful and satisfying for both students and staff. This webinar explores a wide range of strategies and activities that teachers and general staff can implement to help international students feel part of their school and broader Australian community.
- Analyse the needs of newly arrived international students in the English classroom
