How continuing education models can serve international students: Editorial


In a recent editorial for The evoLLLution, Michelle Aarons (York University) discusses how continuing education programs can better serve international students. Aarons argues that continuing education models should take a more holistic approach to their students’ experience by considering their needs inside and outside of the classroom. For international students, this may involve providing access to English language services, providing a warm welcome during orientation, ensuring students are comfortable in their new accommodations, celebrating their graduation, and offering continued Alumni resources. “While students sign up for the education that will lead to the dream, they are also looking for the experience,” she concludes. “That experience and support is in the institution’s hands.”
