With globalisation there has been an increase in cross-border travel of skilled work forces (Kim and Locke, 2010; Poole and Ewan, 2010) including academics within HE. Nearly 28% of academics working in the UK HE sector come from other countries (HEFCE, 2015). The presence of immigrant academics may offer pedagogic opportunities and challenges not only for themselves but also for their students, colleagues, the HEIs and the HE sector in general. The study draws on the pedagogical experiences of migrant academics within UK HE institutions (HEIs), and proposes some possible approaches for negotiating these challenges.
