Abstract

This article examines the impetus for and development of a guide for teaching international students at a polytechnic in New Zealand. Tensions educators may experience when teaching and assessing international students have sometimes been overlooked due to a primary focus on the sector’s economic value. The authors are educators who acknowledge the strengthening of global education as it trends around the world and the emerging initiatives New Zealand has put in place to remain relevant. In the Guide, we focus on the educators’ realm, the classroom, and offer research informed strategies for teachers to better facilitate successful learning outcomes. The Guide discussed is an in-house publication.
