Join the International Instructors Working Group to find a supportive community with international colleagues from across the university. For this meeting we will focus on issues related to identity and authority in the classroom. Come to talk about how your own identities (e.g., race, gender, nationality, age, etc.) may impact interactions with your students, and develop pedagogical strategies that will help you to create an inclusive learning environment in which your students and you can thrive.   

To join the International Instructors Working Group mailing list so that you will get detailed information about each session throughout the semester, contact Kirsten Helmer at the Center for Teaching & Learning.

The International Instructors Working Group is co-sponsored by the Center for Teaching & Learning and the Graduate School’s Office of Professional Development.
