Text offers strategies for teaching culturally diverse students

UWindsor professors Clayton Smith and George Zhou have published a new book that builds on their research into international education.

The Handbook of Research on Teaching Strategies for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse International Students, published by IGI Global, comprises 20 chapters written by 35 authors from 12 countries. Contributing authors include fellow Faculty of Education professor James Oloo and several doctoral students.

“This book presents the student voice as it relates to student satisfaction and student perceptions of learning, covering topics such as learning technology integration, student engagement, and instruction planning,” said Dr. Smith.

“We hope it will be an essential resource for faculty in higher education, university administration, pre-service teachers, academicians, and researchers.”

Smith said he intends to use the book as a text in his special topics course this fall.
