In recent years CWRU has been steadily increasing the numbers of international students who enroll for courses of study. These students enrich the university culture by broadening the experience of our domestic students while also gaining a better understanding of the US.
But we have to be aware that the educational background of international students can be quite different to ours and what we take for granted may be strange and even alienating to them. As instructors in the classroom, we need to be mindful of these differences and how to overcome any discomfort they may feel.
At the next UCITE session, in conjunction with we will explore tips on supporting and engaging undergraduate international students in the classroom by interacting with an international student panel focused on creating effective classroom dynamics. This session is designed to provide faculty with more tools to work with a diverse population of students and allow domestic and international students to have meaningful educational experiences.
Please join us for this discussion from 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. in the Herrick Room, which is on the ground floor of the Allen building (at the corner of Adelbert and Euclid).
Pizza lunch and sodas will be provided at this session. To help us estimate the amount to order, please let us know if you plan to attend each session by emailing us at email@example.com.
