Virtual Session: Keeping International Students & other English Learners Engaged & Motivated

Presentor(s):
Evelyn Pierro
Description:

Instructors are well aware that the students in their classes come from a variety of different backgrounds and educational settings. What is sometimes forgotten, however, is that these varied backgrounds may include other countries and languages. Students from other countries and/or language backgrounds often face language and cultural challenges that can interfere with comprehending course content and expectations. This in turn can lead to a lack of engagement and motivation. This workshop will provide examples of cultural and language challenges facing these students, followed by suggestions for how to address the challenges and help all students be successful in your course.

Learning Outcomes:

By the end of the workshop, participants will:

  • recognize and identify learning challenges unique to students from other countries and/or language backgrounds
  • utilize a variety of teaching strategies designed to engage and motivate students who are dealing with cultural and language challenges
