What should academic advisors know about the educational systems and educational assumptions of the international students they advise? How can advisors communicate successfully with students transitioning between cultures? How can advisors make materials user friendly to international students? In this videocast panel discussion, moderated by NACADA Webinar Advisory Board Past-Chair Terry Musser, panelists Wei-Chien Lee (San Jose State University), Maren Larson (Pennsylvania State University), and Yung-Hwa Anna Chow (Washington State University) draw on their experiences as international students and as advisors working with international students from China to suggest strategies to assist advisors as they interact with students making language and cultural transitions.
