The rise in international student numbers means that teachers face unique challenges arising from language and cultural differences in understanding.
Teaching in the Global Business Classroom presents an educational framework for effective teaching and learning in the global classroom. It provides practical tools for teachers through suggestions for innovative curriculum design, lecture techniques, group work and participation activities, as well as the use of case studies and assessment methods.
This book is an essential resource for teachers and lecturers looking to provide the best possible teaching experience for their students, but who may be unsure how to address the issues raised by the rise in ethnic diversity. It will also be of great interest to student teachers at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
