The Experience of an International University Teacher in Australia
Abayadeera, Nadana
Accounting Education, v22 n3 p295-298 2013
Accounting and Business schools in Australia have a considerable number of international academic staff, and the teaching effectiveness of such staff is an increasingly salient issue. Many international teachers are non-native English speakers and have different teaching approaches and styles, often reflecting their own experiences as a learner in their home country. For example, research has shown that international faculty members try to be more formal in class, focus more on the content, and use many slides to deliver the content. Being an international teacher, the author has experienced incidents in which students have complained about her classes and criticised her teaching method, resulting in poor student satisfaction scores. This Postcard is a reflection on these critical incidents in the author's teaching career; it outlines how the author dealt with the incidents and what she has learned.
