We will consider the strategies, facts, opportunities, and challenges associated with LMU’s growing international student body as the classroom structure and learning environment evolves; and we invite colleagues to bring along and share their suggestions, questions, concerns, and experiences. We will explore questions such as: How many international students does LMU have and where do they come from? What is LMU’s strategic goal for international enrollment? How are international students recruited and admitted? How do they do once they are at LMU? What do they bring and what challenges do they face? How can we as instructors best adapt teaching to meet their needs and integrate what they have to offer? What are challenges instructors may experience and how can they be addressed? How can our students’ diverse backgrounds enhance learning and critical thinking in class?
Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or x85866.
