Strategies for Working with International Students in the Classroom

We all recognize the immense value that international students bring to our campus, yet language and cultural differences may lead to misunderstandings and a lack of student success. In this workshop, Baylor Global Gateway Faculty will share their knowledge and experience to offer suggestions for improving classroom interactions with international students. Some topics are how to encourage international students to be more involved in discussions, how to help them overcome language challenges, and how to help them learn the value of taking notes in class. Come to learn some practical tips, and be ready to share the strategies that have worked well for you.
