Cultures of Education: Reflecting on Study Habits, Student-teacher Relationships, and Academic Integrity Through an Intercultural Lens

Ever wonder why some students stay silent in whole-class discussions? Or why other students copy from online sources without citing?  How about why some students ask for higher grades… sometimes more than once!?  This interactive webinar explores the role that differences in educational cultures might play in shaping students’ behaviours. It also provides a few concrete strategies for helping students understand educational and academic values at UFV, for example around plagiarism academic honesty.  Come ready to share stories from your own educational experiences!

This webinar is a stand-alone offering that builds on the discussions and themes covered in the Internationalization and Intercultural Education Webinar.

Helping your Child Succeed

Every parent wants their child to be happy and successful at school. Many parents struggle with knowing how to support their children with school-related activities. This session will invite participants to seek a partnership between each child, the school and themselves. This partnership will create a positive structure at home to support their children’s experience at school and focus on ways to reward effort rather than outcomes.

During this one-hour wellness session participants will:

  • Learn to build partnerships between each child, the school and themselves as parents
  • Discover how to create a positive structure at home to support their children’s experience at school
  • Become aware of ways to reward effort rather than outcomes

Goal Setting

At the conclusion of our session, it is my intention for you to be able to take away and have a clearer vision on how to connect the dots to achieving your goals.
