Teaching International Students
The Teaching International Students Project was a joint initiative between the Higher Education Academy and the United Kingdom Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA) with funding from the Prime Minister's Initiative 2 (PMI2).
The project focuses on the ways that lecturers and other teaching staff can maintain and improve the quality of teaching and learning for international students. This is done through providing guidance and information about how to meet the diverse learning needs of international students.
The TIS project activities include:
- the ‘International Student Lifecycle' Resources Bank
- a series of collaborative events with other higher education organisations
- the development of a community of practice
