GoLive May Discussion Series: The Learning Experiences of International Students in an Australian University

Discussion series may

GoLive is back with the discussion series event for this upcoming May 2017. We are proudly bringing to the table the experience of Dr. Barry Elsey and Dr. Amina Omarova from the Entrepreneurship, Commercialisation and Innovation Centre (ECIC), University of Adelaide South Australia, in delivering a double degree master program, co-partnered with Bogor Agricultural Institute (IPB) Indonesia.

Drs Elsey and Omarova designed and managed an applied research learning program for a cohort of Indonesian students doing the split-site, double-degree Master’s program shared between University of Adelaide and IPB. All the students were employees of the Ministry of Industry, specifically employed on various kinds of agricultural development work.
The intention of the presentation is to set the teaching and learning program within the wider context of studies of international students in western universities, which is a significant development that began in the early 1980s. Dr. Elsey was among the first to undertake systematic research into the learning experiences of international students.
Many years later the opportunity arose to take a research interest into the learning experiences of the Indonesian students as they dealt with the many challenges of their life and study times in Adelaide, both the university and the city. We shall explain those various challenges of being an international student and the stakeholder interest in their success.

Titled “The Learning Experiences of International Students in an Australian University: A Case Study of Indonesian Public Servants Doing a Double Degree Master”, this May Discussion Series will be enriching the experience and knowledge of those who are looking for opportunities to devising similar program collaborated with Australian institutions.
