Course description

International Encounters: Higher Education and the International Student Experience

Presenter: CindyAnn Rose-Redwood, PhD, Department of Geography

Friday, September 21: 12:30 to 1:45 pm

As universities move toward diversifying their campuses through the promotion of internationalization ideals, they often emphasize cross-cultural learning and social interactions between international students and their host communities. This presentation provides a broad overview of research that has been conducted on international students and their interactions with domestic students while studying within higher education institutions across North America. This presentation will also highlight some preliminary findings on the academic and social experiences of international students taking courses within a Geography Department at a university in British Columbia. Concluding remarks will involve a discussion of the challenges and opportunities that come with teaching international students on university campuses.

CindyAnn Rose-Redwood, PhD, is an Assistant Teaching Professor in the Department of Geography at the University of Victoria. Her research examines the social experiences of international students in higher education settings, the social geographies of immigrant communities in North American cities, and the Caribbean diaspora. She is currently co-editing a book entitled, International Encounters: Higher Education and the International Student Experience.
