RBS is the international business department of Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences (Hogeschool Rotterdam). In this department students and staff come from all over the world. Its student population counts up to 70 nationalities, and the staff up to 35. The international mix creates a very interesting, dynamic environment that also comes with its own challenges.
In each episode of this podcast series we interview a colleague from a different country. Relay style. This way we not only do we aim to get to know out international colleagues better, but especially to learn from the different perspectives on international classroom teaching that live among our staff. This information will help us to better understand and cater to the different student and lecturer expectations in this international setting.
We invite you to listen to the first three episodes of this podcast series and learn about the differences and similarities in educational cultures.
Episode 1: Cheryl (Netherlands) interviews Michelle Speyrer (USA).
Episode 2: Michelle interviews Sharon Dzwairo (Zimbabwe)
Episode 3: Sharon interviews Nga Bui (Vietnam).
