Many schools have welcomed international students into their school communities with the very best intentions. Expanding curriculum, providing a broader worldview, deepening cross-cultural understanding, and enhancing the school mission were envisioned as the hoped-for outcomes.

This webinar will provide insights into cultural differences* that impact learning and will also provide tips and techniques for teachers to improve learning and relieve tension.
