Baylor University is committed to recruiting and supporting international students. In line with the strategic priorities in Illuminate, Baylor plans to increase the number of international students to approximately 8% by 2023. Because of language and cultural challenges, international students sometimes struggle academically and suffer emotionally. Guided by faculty perspectives on teaching international students, this session will cover topics including communication with students and techniques of structure, simplicity, and samples. Finally, we will address Western academic practices that international students may have difficulty understanding.

Watch, too, for a special series "Connecting with International Students in the Classroom" on Feb 25, Mar 31, and Apr 14 (Tuesdays), 2:30-3:30pm.
