Abstract or Summary

This presentation presents preliminary research into the ways that high numbers of international students affect the workload of lecturers and tutors in tertiary institutions. The initial material involved a questionnaire sent to tutors of international students and identified the extra time taken to mark international students' work and other teaching issues that arise in classes where there is a mix of domestic and international students. It can only be described as a pilot study so far and therefore the results can only be indicative. However, once the research tool has been validated, the results will provide extremely valuable information for management in terms of providing resources for teaching international students.
