Description

This presentation considered some of the key issues surrounding the pedagogy of working with international students embedded within vocational classes, including the Access to HE Diploma. It was based on work undertaken by Mike Saunders (Head of Studies, Lifelong Learning and HE, York College) and Roy Fisher (Professor of Education, University of Huddersfield).
A section of the work presented will be included as part of a chapter in a book published by Springer International. The work will also contribute to a research project being carried out at York College, which aims to investigate how the principles identified from research in other countries apply in the UK further education (FE) sector. The presentation focussed on the principles needed to develop pedagogy that meets the needs of both international and local students
