Webinar: Discussing a Research Study about Study Abroad and Pre-departure Preparation for Internatioanl Students

Pre-departure Preparation of East Asian Students for U.S. Academic & Cultural Challenges

In our twenty-first century’s IT learning environment, how can we prepare international students for U.S. study before they arrive in the States?

This is the topic I will be discussing during Wednesday’s webinar entitled Developing Cultural Competence at the College and University Level hosted by the Berlitz Training Management Corporation on June 17 (7:00 am PST).

By helping international students develop better expectations of what they will experience during their first year at a U.S. campus, we can help them better manage cross-cultural adjustment challenges so they function as healthy and happy students whose English and social skills continuously develop as they succeed academically and  professionally.

Join the webinar and learn about how online cultural training is applied in U.S. universities.  Hope to see you Wednesday online.  ~ Tara
