Piyawan Charoensap-Kelly, Narissra Punyanunt-Carter


In this reflective article, we discuss various ways to help international students transition back to teaching and learning post-COVID-19. We summarize the challenges international students have historically faced and how the pandemic has exacerbated those challenges. Also, we offer an interdisciplinary communication research agenda related to teaching and engaging international students. Finally, we provide multiple ways that can help improve the mentorship and support of international students at higher education institutions in the United States. The main objective is to highlight how we can renew our pedagogical scholarship and practices that can aid us in designing more inclusive internationalization efforts for the discipline of communication studies.
