Quick reference guide for staff with Virtual Exchange students

Whatever length of experience you may have as a distance university teacher, the first time that you teach students from a different institution you may find the experience challenging. There are some areas where their expectations about university study may be different from those of your “home” students. You also need to be aware that cultural differences and previous educational experience may have resulted in assumptions which don’t apply to study at your institution.

On-line guides to teaching foreign distance education students can be accessed via a later link on this page, but for a quick reference guide to areas which may be problematic click here.
