Successful engagement of international students is an integral part of DePaul’s VISION 2018 strategic plan, which calls for faculty to be “focused on globalization, curricular innovation and preparedness to teach in a global classroom.” This interactive workshop will engage participants in identifying and addressing the cultural, linguistic and social challenges for the 1,600+ international students from nearly 80 countries at DePaul. Participants will become familiar with strategies and resources to support international student success in and out of the classroom. How can we design classroom setting/environment, teaching strategies, technology and communication strategies to most effectively promote engagement of all students?
Participants will become familiar with relevant issues and practices, and leave with concrete teaching and communication strategies for interacting effectively with international students.
