101: Strategies to Maximize (International) Student Participation
Presenters: Erin Horan (Center for Teaching, Research & Learning) & Kim Westemeier (Center for Teaching, Research & Learning)
Location: Butler Board Room
As stated in a 2018 report released by the Institute of International Education (IIE), “The United States remains the top host of international students globally.” As we welcome more international students onto campus and into our classrooms, we will need to continue to be mindful of the unique experiences all students bring, including their past educational experiences. For example, rather than tallying the amount of times each student speaks in class we will examine alternative approaches that define participation as multi-directional flows of communication and collaboration (student-to-student, -self, -Instructor, -content). In this session we will discuss strategies to effectively, efficiently, and inclusively assess participation of all students.
