Dr Bernard Gan
The Australian Parents Education Association Incorporated (APEAI) - a Brisbane-based Chinese Parents' Association - is holding a talk for members of the Chinese community (parents and children) to assist both local and international students transiting to first year at university.
The event is organised on our Nathan campus to give potential students and their parents a first hand onsite experience to see our campus and lecture venues. The venue is conveniently located within easy walking distance of the multi-storey car park. Parking on campus is free after 7.00pm.
Dr Bernard Gan is Senior Lecturer and First Year Coordinator in the Department of International Business and Asian Studies. Based on his 12 years' experience teaching first year students, his talk will cover topics including:
• Key differences between high school and university
• Practical advice on how to transit successful to university life
• Role of students at University
• Role of professors at University
• Questions and Answers
The content of the talk is suitable for high school students Year 10 to 12, university undergraduate students, and their parents. The talk will take around 1 hour 45 minutes with questions and answers for a further 15 minutes.
While the talk is directed towards the Chinese community, some parents may like to ask questions in mandarin but the delivery of the talk will be in English. Thus, parents and students from other ethnic backgrounds are most welcome to attend.
