Hello everyone! Ophelia here with a blog about the English UK Student Experience Conference that I recently attended.
It was an extremely useful information session about how to create a welcoming and inclusive environment for optimum learning. We learned how we as indivuduals view the world through our own unique filter, with elements of culture, value and experience combining to help us make sense of the environment and people surrounding us.
The experiences of those approaching life from very different perspectives may not always be clear to us, and sometimes biases (theirs and ours) can cloud students’ ability to engage and learn to their full potential. Through careful attention to inclusion and diversity, and a focus on relationship-building and non-judgemental listening, we can promote student wellbeing and optimal learning in the international classroom.
We also spoke about the importance of safeguarding guidelines, and it was a great opportunity to share ideas and concerns, and listen to other industry professionals about how they deal with these important issues.
I got a lot of ideas that hopefully will help the team at Tti to improve and be able to give the best experience to all of our students, as you are the most important part of Tti!
Until next time!
