Lin, Isadora Jung-Hsiu (2012) Whom to group with - a Bourdieusian narrative analysis of international students in an Australian university. In Wright, Janine (Ed.) Australian Association of Research in Education Conference, 2-6 December 2012, University of Sydney, NSW.
Introduction to the topic or context and/or mapping of the literature Increasing degree-seeking, self-funded, international students from affluent Asian countries, who use English as an additional language (EAL), have contributed to cultural and linguistic diversities in Australian universities. Such diversities further posed challenges in pedagogy and assessment. In particular, these students' English proficiency and cultural attributes were highlighted as factors in productive group discussions, and equitable group assessment. The focus in the research literature thus far is on how EAL international students can better English proficiency and adaptability to group participation. However, little is known from sociological perspectives about the power relations involved in EAL students' choice of group members in group discussions.
