Lunch provided. With the number of international students increasing at Fairfield, what do we need to do as a community to manage different learning, studying, pedagogical styles? Join panelists Wook-Sung Yoo (Engineering), Qin Zhang (Communication) and Carl Scheraga (Management) for a discussion to address complexities including: • How should we recognize differences in native academic culture? • How should academic integrity be framed to account for a multi-cultural perspective? • Supporting international students – Who is responsible? Where? How?
