From the Publisher“Understanding why American students behave the way they do is critical in order for interactions with students to be effective and meaningful. The book identifies several areas of educational differences among cultures, raising readers’ awareness and allowing them to avoid potential pitfalls of cross-cultural communication.
…Strategies for Teaching Assistant and International Teaching Assistant Development includes several ideas for exercises in articulating personal advising philosophies, prompting advisors to respond to questions regarding what characteristics are necessary in a good advisor and what kind of person would win an “Advisor of the Year” award.
With an open mind and a knack for modifying exercises, an imaginative advising mentor could easily use this book as a springboard for introducing new approaches to advisor development.”
