International students often face a unique set of challenges while pursuing their education outside their home countries. Many of the challenges related to class participation, assignments, and engagement with the US academic culture can be made less difficult when faculty are aware of the challenges and equipped with tools to help mitigate them.
In this workshop, Dr. Zuzana Tomaš, Associate Professor of ESL/TESOL at Eastern Michigan University, will present information about the US academic culture and factors that influence international student success. She will then share a framework and pedagogical strategies that she has developed for faculty to work more effectively with international students.
Dr. Tomaš will also draw from the results of the U-M SSW International Student Experience Survey - which was developed by the Office of Global Activities and shared with students in the Winter 2022 semester - to illustrate how these strategies could help address issues present at the School of Social Work. She will be joined by some of our international students who will share their experiences.
All faculty are invited to learn more about how you can better support international students and help them feel welcomed at the U-M School of Social Work!Room: Online
