Many international students come from countries with very different academic cultures than the United States, and they bring with them different histories, world views and perspectives. Beyond international students, the MSU community contains individuals of many national identities, including students who grew up in other countries, migrant students and students with migrant parents.
This session will provide an overview of international student issues at MSU, as well as discuss methods to encourage engagement and inclusion in the classroom, resources to support inclusive teaching and suggest best practices for working with non-U.S. national identities in the classroom.
This session is the first of the 2017-18 Learn at Lunch (L@L) series sponsored by the Office for Inclusion and Intercultural Initiatives, the Academic Advancement Network and the Associate Provost’s Office of Undergraduate Education.
L@L swssions bring important topics related to inclusive teaching to the campus community, with a focus on presenting best practices and fostering dialogue across the Spartan CommUnity.
