    Inclusive Classroom: Facilitating the Success of International Students
    Tuesday, June 28, 10:00-11:00

    Presenter: Xiaochen Liu, CETL – Faculty Development

    What are some ways to make courses work better for international students? How can instructors foster belonging and activate diversity to enhance learning? In this interactive workshop, we will share experiences, scenarios, and opportunities that often arise when students and instructors from diverse parts of the world gather in a class. Tools and strategies will be suggested for promoting interaction and helping international students learn.
    The goal of the workshop is to enhance participants' recognition of:

    • cultural and linguistic diversity

    • implicit bias

    • international students' challenges

    • effective course activities for openness and trust

    • tools and strategies for equitable participation

    Depending upon the interests of participants, the discussion may also include:

    • Dual-language learning, thinking, and note taking

    • Difficult dialogues and teaching in the context of geopolitical conflict

    • Things that are on your mind
