Presented by Brooke Haley and Gitte Frandsen, English for Academic Purposes (EAP)

Open only to: UWM Faculty, Teaching Academic Staff, and Teaching Assistants

In recent years, the enrollment of international students and other multilingual speakers has increased dramatically at UWM, and many of us have international students and/or multilingual students in our classrooms. This can be enriching and exciting, and sometimes it can be challenging. This 1-hour workshop addresses the needs and behaviors of international and multilingual students and proposes ways instructors can adapt their teaching to better meet those needs.

The workshop presents a series of challenges and solutions to working with this student population, and we invite attendees to share their own experiences, perceptions, and solutions to how we can secure the most beneficial outcomes for all students.

This workshop is intended for anyone—whether or not you have taught international and multilingual students.
