“Increasing numbers of international students can prompt teachers to think about how they teach, what they teach, and how to use students’ previous learning experiences…. By helping international students to be on an equal footing with other students, by helping them to learn and demonstrate their ability in appropriate ways, we do not need to lower stands. Indeed, international students are often amongst our highest achievers once they ‘learn the rules.’ But we need to do things differently.”
