Connecting with International Students in the Classroom: Strategies for Understanding Cultural Backgrounds

DateFebruary 25, 2020
Time2:30 - 3:30 pm
LocationJones Library Creekmore Conference Room
DescriptionAs international student enrollment increases on campus, instructors may find students in their classes who are non-native speakers of English, whose cultural norms for academics and communication are not the same as ours, and whose life experiences may have been very different from those of domestic students. These differences can certainly enrich classroom interaction and discussion; however, they may also pose some distinct challenges for professors. This workshop offers practical experience using several different survey instruments aimed at better understanding student diversity as well as perspectives on addressing student behavior with an eye for cultural differences.
