Teaching International Students and Multicultural Awareness

Friday, February 10, 2017
1:30pm – 3:00pm

Storrs Campus
Oak Hall, 117

We will start this session by reflecting on how culture affects many aspects we take for granted in most university courses, including power relations, the role of the individual, time, and much more. We will then add the additional hurdle of negotiating all that in a different language. As we discuss how to take advantage of a linguistically and culturally diverse campus, participants will have a chance to share their experiences and learn more about:

- international students’ challenges and successes;

- what we can do to support non-native English speakers in our classes without lowering standards;

- additional resources inside and outside UConn.
