There is a plethora of new international students flocking to Canada from India. The rapid growth is unprecedented and our systems, faculty, staff, other students and in some cases whole communities have encountered a number of challenges and opportunities resulting from this rapid growth. During this session, the panelists will discuss challenges such as managing growth, agents, classroom dynamics, plagiarism, language readiness as well as opportunities such as program development, student engagement and community impact and engagement. The panelist will share some of tips from the trenches and participants will be given an opportunity to ask questions and share their experiences.
