Nov. 1: Roundtable on Teaching
Event to focus on creating welcoming environment for international students
12:13 p.m., Oct. 15, 2013--The next First Friday Roundtable on Teaching, “Classroom Challenges for International Students: Creating a Welcoming Environment,” will be held from 3:30-5 p.m., Friday, Nov. 1, in 208 Gore Hall.
In this session, participants will interact with a diverse group of international students who will reflect on their experiences as members of the growing UD international student population.
With students serving as expert informants, faculty participants will work in small groups to consider a range of scenarios that typify some of the situations these students encounter in classrooms.
The session will wrap up with the student panel reflecting on faculty strategies and suggestions for best practices in classrooms.
Faculty, graduate teaching assistants, and the many staff members who work to create a productive and welcoming environment for international students are all welcome to attend. Refreshments will be served. Registration can be found online.
The final First Friday Roundtable of 2013, “Mentoring Undergraduate Students,” will be held on Dec. 6 in 410 Interdisciplinary Science and Engineering Laboratory (ISE Lab). Register for this event online.
The First Friday Roundtables are designed and sponsored through a collaboration between Academic Technology Services, the Center for Teaching and Assessment of Learning, the President’s Diversity Initiative, and the Institute for Transforming Undergraduate Education.
This session is co-sponsored by the International Caucus and is a follow-up session from the spring First Friday Roundtable “Working with Undergraduate International Students” held in collaboration with Institute for Transforming Undergraduate Education, the Center for Teaching and Assessment of Learning, the English Language Institute and Undergraduate Admissions.
