International Scholars Discussion Group:

Co-sponsored by the Institute for Teaching Excellence & Development (TEFD) and the Graduate School Office of Professional Development (OPD).

Event #1: International Café

Do you love sitting in a café engaged in a great conversation? We invite you to a session that we will spend in collaborative table conversations around questions that matter:

  • What critical issues are you facing as international instructors?
  • What issues are our international students facing?
  • What do we need to know so that our international students feel supported and can learn effectively?
  • What steps might we choose to deal with these issues?

Your voice is important – will you join?
