The Communication Patterns of Chinese Students with Their Lecturers in an Australian University
Ai, Bin
Educational Studies, v43 n4 p484-496 2017
Chinese students are now the largest group of international students in the Australian higher education sector. The patterns of Chinese communication and education affect the ways that Chinese students engage with their lecturers and manage their learning relationships. A case study of these patterns provides a small window through which to observe the progress of higher education internationalisation in Australia. In this study, the experiences of seven Chinese students in a multicultural educational context are explored, with a focus on their communication practices and relationships with their lecturers in Australia. This paper contributes to understandings of how student-teacher communication practices affect learning experiences for Chinese students in Australian or other international universities.
